Hello friends! Here’s another awesome salad recipe. I had a bunch of carrots in my fridge, a TON of mint growing in the herb garden…and this salad is the result. Crispy, crunchy, colorful, sweet and tart. Great with grilled fish or cold, marinated shrimp.

Serves 4 to 6 people

prep time- 5 minutes

cook time- 0 minutes (no cooking necessary)

1/3 cup greek yogurt

2 Tablespoons real mayonnaise

1 Tablespoon fresh lemon or lime juice

1 teaspoon lemon or lime zest

1 Tablespoon cider vinegar

1 Tablespoon clover honey

2 dashes cayenne pepper

5 medium carrots, peeled and sliced thinly on the diagonal

1/2 tart apple, unpeeled and chopped

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

2 Tablespoons fresh mint, chopped

salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Combine yogurt, mayo, citrus juice, citrus zest, vinegar, honey and cayenne in a small bowl. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine the carrots, apple, onion, and mint. Mix well. Pour yogurt dressing over and mix until all ingredients are evenly incorporated. Season to taste with salt, pepper and a little more cayenne if you wish.

Enjoy!
