Welcome to the eighth edition of the The Salad Bar, a monthly newsletter to keep you up to date on the website: Easy Salad

Here's what's new this month...

A new carrot salad has been added to the site this month: Apple Carrot Salad. This salad is a very simple one made with chopped apple, shredded carrot, vanilla yogurt, lemon juice and honey.

Here it is:

Apple Carrot Salad


2-4 carrots
1 apple

Optional Ingredients:

1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped nuts


3-4 tbsp. vanilla yogurt
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. honey

Peel and grate carrots into a bowl. Use enough to make about 2 cups.

For the apple you can either grate it down to the core or slice it up with a knife to the core and cut it up into chunks or julienne style. If you grate it the flavour isn't quite as pronounced as it blends in with the carrot and doesn't always come through unless it is tart or slightly under-ripe.

I leave the skin on but you may prefer to peel the apple first.

For the dressing you can use plain yogurt and add a few drops of vanilla extract instead of vanilla yogurt. You can also experiment with different flavoured yogurts as well. Fat-free, partly skimmed or regular yogurt will all work well with this recipe. For fat free yogurt use 4 tablespoons, less for regular.

The lemon juice can be substituted with any other fruit juice you may have. Orange and lime juice are good alternatives.

If you don't have or want to use honey you can use a little sugar, artificial sweetener or even pancake syrup. Just remember to use sweeteners sparingly.

Mix dressing together in a small bowl and add to salad. Mix well and cool salad for at least an hour before serving.

Next Month

Fall is here and I'm heading off to my real job fishing for the prickly sea urchin for a while. I may be late on next months newsletter as I'm not always able to get online while on the fishboat. I will, however be making some new salads while away and will post them to the site when I can.

Thanks for reading and hope you're not too sad to see summer slipping away...Gord Angrignon.
