Carrot, Green Apple and Mint Salad
I found this recipe and thought it sounded so interestingly good! My little one may even like it. I am going to try it out!
1/3 cup plain nonfat yogurt
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1 pound carrots, peeled and trimmed
1 Granny Smith apple, cored
2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh mint leaves
Fold a full sheet of paper towel into quarters and place it in a small bowl. Spoon the yogurt on top of the paper towel. Place it in the refrigerator for 20 minutes so the yogurt can drain and thicken.
In a small bowl whisk together the thickened yogurt and the mayonnaise, until smooth. Whisk in the lemon juice, vinegar, and honey.
Grate first the carrots and then the apples in a food processor. Transfer them to a large bowl and stir to combine. Pour the dressing over the carrot mixture and toss. Add the mint and season with salt.
