Carrot Apple Cheddar Salad with Bacon

Carrot Apple Cheddar Salad with Bacon
Recipe type: Salad
 
Ingredients
For the Creamy Spiced Apple Yogurt Dressing:
  • ¼ cup Spicy Apple Chutney (or any favourite chutney)
  • ⅓ cup Greek yogurt
For the salad:
  • 2 cups shaved carrots
  • 1 apple, cored and cut into 1cm(1/2″) chunks
  • ¼ cup crumbled 8 year old cheddar (feta cheese would also work well)
  • 2 slices bacon, crisped and crumbled
Instructions
For the Creamy Spiced Apple Yogurt Dressing:
  1. In a small bowl, combine the chutney and yogurt until smooth.
To shave carrots:
  1. After peeling the carrots, simply keep peeling in long strips with a vegetable peeler (you can also coarsely grate the carrot and toss it together with the rest of the ingredients if you’d rather make the salad even simpler).
For the salad:
  1. Toss the shaved carrots with half of the dressing and spread over the bottom of two serving bowls. Make a depression in the centre of each, making room for the rest of the salad. Toss the apple and cheddar with the other half of the dressing. Mound this mixture in the centre of the shaved carrots and top with crispy, crumbled bacon. Serves 2.
