Carrot Apple Yogurt Salad

This is not the most beautiful salad in the world, but it’s oh so good – and nutritious.  After a day sitting in the yogurt dressing, the salad was even better – but even less pretty.  Sometimes beauty isn’t everything! Recipe loosely adapted from Moosewood Cookbook by Mollie Katzen

  • 7 medium carrots (please do not buy those little peeled carrots; get ones with the tops still on so you can judge freshness), peeled, coarsely grated or julienned with a mandoline or a food processor)
  • 2 large apples, peeled and grated or julienned
  • 3/4 c yogurt (not low fat and not sweetened)
  • 1 T lemon juice
  • 1 T agave or honey
    1 T seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp celery seed
  • 1/3 c sliced almonds, toasted (optional)

Combine all the ingredients and mix well.  Chill.  When ready to serve, sprinkle on some toasted, sliced almonds.
