Directions

  1. Core and slice each apple into 1/4 in thick slices (leave skin on). Arrange slices in single layer on plate or platter.
  2. Cut lemon in half. Squeeze gently and rub rim of lemon half along each apple slice, like an applicator, for a good stripe of lemon juice on each.
  3. Season apples lightly and evenly with salt. (Hold hand high for good dispersion.)
  4. Sprinkle apples lightly and evenly with mint. (Hold hand high for good dispersion.) Serve immediately.
