Granny Smith apple, cored and shredded

apple cider vinegar

super super super awesome!! the sesame seeds add a great touch to the salad!! loved it!
I didn't have fresh parsley, so I used about 1 T of fresh chopped cilantro. I also used olive oil. Other than those two substitutions, I followed the recipe. My husband and I thought the salad was delicious. It is good with or without the sesame seeds. I tasted the salad before I added them, and I think I liked it better. My husband likes it with them--it adds an Asian zing--so you can't go wrong either way. I will be making this salad often.
When eating pepper and garlic in an apple salad, this takes some getting used to! I liked this because it was not sweet, and the tang of the lemon and vinegar came out! I didn't have parsley, so used a bit of green pepper for an accent color. When pumpkins are in season, this will be wonderful to replace the carrots with pumpkin! This is a great recipe! Thanks!
Tried it today exactly as the recipe went - with both vinegar, granny smith and lemon it was a little heavy on the acids for my taste. Next time I'll try some sweet apple and half the lemon or vinegar to see how I like it.
The recipe is well worth trying just to be amazed of how much punch the tiny tiny sesame seeds contributes tho ;D I was very surprised, and pleasantly so. Remember to roast them for the full experience!
Delicious! I was pleasantly surprised. Big improvement over the usual super sweet varieties.
