      Scrumptious!!! My DH and I love this salad. My friend has a recipe similar to this, but this one is much better. To keep the apples from turning brown I put them in a separate bowl with the lemon juice and tossed them around before adding them to the carrots. This kept them from browing so quickly and it made the apples have a nice little lemony zing to them! I also used whole-milk vanilla yogurt as it was the only kind that I had on hand, but it helped sweeten the salad without having to use as much honey. And instead of nuts I added raisins, they get very nice and plump after being in with the juicy carrots and apples. Great recipe Inge! Definately a keeper that I will be making again and again! Thanks!!!

      This was excellent! I did make one substitution -when I went to add the yogurt I realized that I had reused the container, and it was actually full of leftover cabbage :( so I used oil and vinegar instead, which made for a nice, light salad. For the carrots I had a bag of carrot sticks that I needed to use up, so I lightly chopped them in my food processor rather than trying to grate the little pieces, I also tossed the apple in separately for constancy in texture. Will definitely make this again, especially in the summer when a light and cool side dish is particularly appreciated :D

      I love this recipe and salads with yogurt. I think that yogurt is a wonderful ingredients for salad dressing.
      I had all ingredients on hand and it was fast and easy to prepare this delicious salad.
      Thanks a lot for this recipe.
