Carrot & Apple Salad – 2 Ways (1 is Vegan)

Ingredients

  • 3 medium apples, chopped or thinly sliced
  • 3 cups of shredded carrots
  • Dressing for version 1
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 rounded tsp mayo
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp cilantro, dried or fresh
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice or wine vinegar. Or half & half.
  • Dressing for version 2
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp cilantro, dried or fresh
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice or wine vinegar. Or half & half.
  • 1-2 tbsp honey or a honey substitute

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl add your cleaned, peeled & shredded carrots. If the carrot skin is free of blemishes I don't peel them.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. Chop or slice your cleaned & cored apples. Skin on or skin off.
  4. Add the apples to the bowl. Mix well.
  5. You can serve this right away but for the best flavour, cover & refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  6. Remove from the fridge 20-30 minutes before serving. Unless it's a super hot day or you like your salads very cold.

Notes

You can add toasted sliced almonds. Raisins. Coconut (fresh or dried/shredded or peeled). Or your favourite seed, toasted, such as pumpkin or sunflower. Add just before serving except the raisins. They can be mixed in with the rest of the salad.

Instead of honey you can use maple syrup, agave or a fruit sweetener. Or simply omit the added sugar.

No lemon or wine vinegar? Substitute apple cider vinegar.

If you like spice you can add more black pepper. Or use .5-1 tsp of dried chili flakes.

Instead of cilantro you can use parsley or thyme. Use .5-1 tsp of dried thyme. It's a powerful herb.

Use your favourite apple. Sweet or tart. I used Ambrosia apples in this video.

Make this the night before you are serving it, so all of the flavours can blend & intensify.

Oven Roasted Sweet Potato (White Flesh Variety)

Ingredients

  • 1 large yellow flesh sweet potato, washed & peeled or not
  • 1-2 tbsp of grapeseed/coconut/vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp onion granules/powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 425°F/220°C.
  2. Spread oil on a prepared baking sheet & set it aside.
  3. Cut your sweet potato into equal pieces. About 1.5 inches.
  4. In a bowl or on the same baking sheet, add all of the spices & mix, making sure that the sweet potato pieces are covered well.
  5. Bake for about 35 minutes, or until tender and browned. Times may vary by your oven.

If you refrigerate the cooked sweet potatoes reheat them in the oven for best results. Preheat the oven to 350°F/177°C and heat for 10-12 minutes.
