Typical German Rohkost ("raw food"). Healthy, quick and full of flavour.Slightly sweet and refreshing. Eat as a lunch with wholemeal bread or as a light dinner with bread and an additional tomato salad.
- 1 cup carrot, coarsely grated
- 3⁄4 cup apple, grated
- 3 tablespoons nuts (roughly chopped, toasted if you have time)
- 1⁄4 cup low-fat yogurt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon honey (or sugar)
- 1 -2 teaspoon lemon juice (depending on how sweet you like it)
- 1 pinch salt
- Mix all ingredients except nuts together, sprinkle with nuts.
- Serve immediately, because it turns brown within an hour.
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.
