The apple salad is one of the typical dishes that are enjoyed in Mexico this holiday season. He is usually eaten for Christmas dinner next to stuffed turkey or as one of the multiple preparations that form the traditional menu of old night. Usually the Mexicans have on the table the inevitable and exquisite Romerito, cod, stuffed turkey, some pasta dish and the apple salad.

Today I propose this recipe of the typical salad of apple to the Mexican one, that despite being sweet, it is eaten at the beginning of the dinner and not like dessert. Some family recipes add to this salad other ingredients like peach or a lot more cream to make it more watery. As always each version is perfectly valid and will also depend on personal preferences. Today’s recipe is what they do in my house and I hope you like it.
