This crunchy, healthy salad was inspired by a weekend of overconsumption. Part of my previous job was to plan big events, and I was in the midst of one that was a doozy - it consisted of several lunches and dinners over a 3 day period, and I found myself overeating incredibly rich, catered hotel food. At first, it's fun, and then you think, oh dear, please do not present me with another fried shrimp or crab rangoon - because I will eat it, and then feel terrible!

After running the final event, I willed myself to order the healthiest thing the hotel offered - which was a 'detox' salad. It inspired my Detox Crunch Salad in that it got its crunch from apples and celery. It got me thinking about a salad I could make for the post-holiday season, when we're all perhaps feeling a little uncomfortably full and trying to forget the exact number of cookies we consumed.
