I grew up on a recipe just like this. So, this brought back memories for me! I tweaked it BD-style and think it's yummy and a great way to help my kids eat carrots. :) Hubby and kid tested!


    3 lrg. carrot

    1 c. raisins

    1/2 c. walnuts

    1/4 celery stalk, fresh, organic

    3 tbsp. shredded coconut

    1 med. red apple

    1 egg

    1 tbsp. lemon juice

    2 tsp. dijon mustard

    sea salt & black pepper to taste

    1 c. extra virgin olive oil

    2 tbsp. Greek yogurt

    1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar

    1/2 tsp. honey, raw

    1/4 tsp. sea salt


In a medium sized bowl, combine the shredded carrots, raisins, chopped walnuts, chopped celery, coconut, and chopped apple.

In a small bowl, stir together the mayo (recipe below), Greek yogurt, vinegar, honey, and salt. Stir well and then add to the carrot mixture. Mix well, cover and refrigerate a for a few hours before you serve.

Directions for Homemade Mayonnaise: In a blender or food processor, process the egg, lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper until well combined. While the motor is running, pour the oil in a slow, thin, steady stream and process until the mixture is thick and creamy. *Take your time with this recipe. If you try and rush it, it won’t come out right. **Use only 1/2 cup of mayonnaise in this recipe.
