Good to know when making leek, apple and radish slaw.

I added the apple with the peel. Before slicing it, I washed it thoroughly, dried it and removed the seeds. A soft, sweet and juicy apple variety works best in this salad.

The pecans can be replaced with walnuts.

Himalayan salt can be replaced with iodized salt, but I suggest using a smaller amount.
