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.
Curried Carrot Salad with Nonfat Yogurt
Serves 4 - 6
3/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint
1 large green onion, chopped
1 1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
3/4-1 tsp. mild (sweet) curry powder
1 lb. carrots, peeled and coarsely grated
1/4 c. dried currants
Whisk first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Add carrots and currants. Toss to coat.
Season to taste with salt and pepper (consider white pepper)
