A crowd-pleasing tasty salad I often take to potlucks.
Fill a large bowl about 1/2 full of water and add the lemon juice. Quarter each apple, then cut the core out. Thinly slice wedges off each quarter. Add to the bowl just as soon as they are sliced to keep from browning. As the bowl gets full, rotate the apples to make sure each slice comes into contact with the lemon juice. Add more water if necessary. When all apples are sliced and coated, drain the excess water.
Add the rest of the ingredients and toss well. Adjust seasonings and sweetener to taste. Chill if not serving right away.
