Sweet Potato, Celery & Apple Salad

Today starts our first day doing the Whole Living 21 day detox. I have planned and shopped for the first week. Lunch today was delicious - but I was skeptical as I chopped and julienned a raw sweet potato. I will say this salad took me 45 minutes to chop everything for it, but as I ate, I was thankful for taking the time to do it! Recipe followed exactly, then added a sprinkle of Hemp Seeds on top before serving for some extra protein.
