Frequently Asked Questions
It is totally optional. I personally like the crunch skin gives to the salad, so I keep the skin on. But feel free to peel the apples.
There could be harmful residue on the skin of fresh fruits and vegetables and it is very important to get rid of them before consuming them.
I like to soak my fresh produce in water mixed with veggie wash. You can also use a mix of 1 tablespoon baking soda and ¼ cup white vinegar in place of veggie wash to soak the fresh fruits and veggies.
Fill a large tub with water. Add a cup of veggie wash or baking soda and vinegar to it. Soak the fresh produce in the mixture for 30 minutes. Then rinse well and use.
Apple Kachumber can be served on the side with your weekday meals.
It also makes a healthy snack to eat in between meals or whenever hunger strikes.

I will not recommend you store Seb Kachumber, as the apples tend to get black and lose their crispness if stored for longer. Serve it immediately after you make it.
In case you have leftovers, store them in an air-tight container in the fridge and finish them within a day. Mix the salad properly using a spoon before consuming.
