Ingredients

1/3 cup plain nonfat yogurt

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

1 teaspoon honey

1 pound carrots, peeled and trimmed

1 Granny Smith apple, cored

2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh mint leaves

Salt

Directions

  1. Fold a full sheet of paper towel into quarters and place it in a small bowl. Spoon the yogurt on top of the paper towel. Place it in the refrigerator for 20 minutes so the yogurt can drain and thicken.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together the thickened yogurt and the mayonnaise, until smooth. Whisk in the lemon juice, vinegar, and honey.
  3. Grate first the carrots and then the apples in a food processor. Transfer them to a large bowl and stir to combine. Pour the dressing over the carrot mixture and toss. Add the mint and season with salt.
  4. Serve chilled.
