Apple and Carrot Salad

This fruity spin on slaw is scrumptious. Buy the season’s exceptional apples and, for comfort, a bag of precut, thickly shredded carrots.

table salt

½ tsp

black pepper

2 oz, French-variety suggested, crumbled


  1. Place apples in a large bowl and toss with lemon juice. Add carrots, chives, oil, sugar, salt, pepper and cheese; toss to mix thoroughly. Yields about 3/4 cup per serving.


If you want more tang, use blue cheese instead of French feta (could affect SmartPoints values).
