Curried Carrot Salad with Nonfat Yogurt

Graduation celebrations and wedding showers are starting to dot my calendar, and I bet yours looks the same. Here's an easy, bright salad that can be made a few hours prior to serving. It's an unusual mix of ingredients, but it's really tasty and can be doubled or tripled easily. The nonfat yogurt (I used Greek) makes it a healthy choice.
