What are the Best Apples for This Salad?

You can use any kind of apple that you like in this salad, however, I really like o use 2 different types of apples. I like to use a sweet apple with a crunch like Red Delicious and then a tart apple like a Granny Smith. You can feel free to use two or more apples or go with one type of apple.
