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.

Another outstanding vote from me. I used pecans and they were a great go with for the carrots and apple. I used fat free yogurt as that is what I always buy and the sweet carrots and apple played wonderfully with the yogurt. This would be ideal in the summer or as a holiday side dish. Very simple and quick using the food processor to grate everything in a few seconds.

I didn't really like this, but I used pre-cut matchstick carrots, they were probably too thick for this salad, so I suggest hand grate. Also, I used vanilla yogurt but felt it needed more tang so next time would use plain and add the honey. I just felt something was missing from this.

Nice salad, easy to make and very tasty. I particularly liked the nut and carrot combination, nuts giving it a nice crunch. I used a no-fat, thick Greek yogurt to save a few fat calories, wildflower honey and 2 teaspoons lemon juice. Thanks!

Lovely salad--I used toasted walnuts and non-fat yogurt. Substantial flavors, yet very light in terms of fat and calories--will make this more. Thanks, Inge!

This is a wonderfully refreshing carrot salad. DH really likes carrot salad and usually it is drenched in a heavy dressing. The combination of low-fat yogurt with the honey and lemon juice makes for a light, refreshing, healthy alternative. Something I am sure to repeat.
