A Healthy Carrot Salad
Not long ago, I mentioned shifting to eating more raw foods. I'm still working on expanding that repertoire. Last night, I tried a healthier carrot salad that's a keeper.
2-3 cups shredded carrots
1 oz. packet of Craisins soaked in water for 5 mins
1/2 cup plain yogurt
8 oz. crushed pineapple with juice
Combine and enjoy. I used 3+ cups of carrots, instead of the 2c called for in the recipe, 1/2 can of pineapple instead of the whole can, and craisins in place of 1/2 cup raisins. Improvise with what you like and what's on hand. I wanted an alternative to a mayonnaise-based salad, and this fits the bill nicely. It's hard to believe this is my 400th post. Happy Friday!
