Can I Make This Salad in Advance?

Can I Make This Salad in Advance?

If you want to get a head start on making this salad, here’s what you can do: Cover the salad in the bowl with damp paper towels and stick it in the fridge. When it’s time to eat, take it out and let it sit for a bit to warm up.

While it’s doing that, make the dressing by mixing olive oil, red wine vinegar, and orange juice. Once the salad is ready, pour the dressing over it and give it a good mix. And there you have it! Your salad is all set to enjoy.

How Can You Keep Apples Fresh in a Salad?

To keep your apples fresh and crisp in the salad, try soaking them in a mix of saltwater. Add a little salt to the water, let the chopped apples soak in it for about 15 minutes, then drain them.

Before adding them to your salad, rinse off any salt taste with tap water. This easy trick helps prevent those unsightly brown spots on your apples, keeping your salad looking and tasting great! 

Can I Keep Sliced Apples Overnight?

After you’ve sliced the apples, rinse them with cold water and then dry them gently. You can eat them immediately or put them in the fridge for later.

Store them in a sealed container, and they’ll stay fresh for up to 12 hours. Whether you munch on them now or save them for later, these apple slices will taste great!
