Very tasty and very, very good for you! It had my BF's two favorite fruits (mandarin oranges and grapes), plus I had a bag of leftover shredded carrots so I just had to try this recipe! Made my BF happy too. I used red grapes, vanilla non-fat yogurt and threw in some leftover scallions (as per other reviewers' recommendations). I also put in a dash of salt. Can't wait to eat leftovers tomorrow for breakfast:D Maybe I will add a tad more vinegar, but I have nothing but great to say for this recipe as is!

We really enjoyed this carrot salad Paula! I made this using regular orange yogurt in place of low-fat and also just used 3 large carrots, remember to hand-squeeze out most extra moisture in the carrots or you will have a very watery salad! Thank, Kitten:)

I was especially fond of this salad dressing. I added some orange juice concentrate to plain yogurt. Didn't think of it until dinner was over but I think this would be great with a little green onion added.
