I needed to add some color to what was going to be an otherwise bland (but really delicious) looking plate tonight, but my husband asked that it not be the things I had ready to whip out: Asparagus and Green Salad. Ug!
Having just put all of my creative brain power into making Zucana loaves and the spicy sweet sauce for BBQ ribs, I was just not feeling it.
I looked into the refrigerator and saw a lot of produce, dairy products, some leftovers and then inspiration struck when I found:
- 2 Pound Bag of Carrots
- Oikos Triple Zero Greek Yogurt Cups
- A Small Can of Crushed Pineapple
Aha! In 10 minutes there would be color on my dinner plate!
Carrot Pineapple Slaw
In a large mixing bowl combine
- 6 Cups Shredded Carrots (About 10 Large Carrots Peeled/Grated)
- 1 Small Can Crushed Pineapple (Drain first)
- 1/2 Cup Golden Raisins
- 2 – 5.3 ounce Cups Vanilla Oikos Triple Zero Greek Yogurt
You can use any yogurt you want to. I like the Oikos because it doesn’t add any fat, sugar or additional sweetness to the salad. I use a rubber spatula to combine everything.
My husband didn’t even complain about it 😉 Bonus!
