Romanian Slaw (Salata de Mere, Morcovi si Telina)

This is probably the best slaw ever!  And I'm not saying that because I grew up with it.  It's the combination of the flavors, which is beyond amazing.  If you've never had celery root, then you're in for a treat!  It's milder and softer than celery sticks, and goes absolutely perfect with the sweetness of the apples and carrots, combined with the tanginess of the cider vinegar.  Absolutely delicious!
You can shred the ingredients by hand or using the food processor.  Whatever you use, go for the large shredder.
This makes a wonderful snack or an amazing side dish to pork chops, fried chicken, fish or whatever you like.  It is sooo delicious! Enjoy!

-2 apples (gala, fuji, etc), peel on, but cored, shredded

-3 Tbs apple cider vinegar
-1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil

Directions:
