Carrot-Apple Slaw
This refreshing, yogurt-dressed slaw makes a superb accompaniment to Indian curry or tandoori-baked chicken. Or, serve the slaw as a sort of salsa to top a well-peppered chili con carne.

  • 1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons dried currants
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons frozen apple juice concentrate
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 large carrots, coarsely shredded
  • 2 medium unpeeled Golden Delicious apples, coarsely shredded

1. Line a small strainer with a paper towel (or line a coffee filter cone with a paper filter) and place over a small bowl. Spoon in yogurt and let drain for 15 minutes. Discard whey.

2. Meanwhile, place currants in small heatproof bowl or cup and pour the boiling water over them; set aside for 10 minutes to plump, then drain.

3. In large bowl, combine thickened yogurt with apple juice concentrate, cinnamon (if using), cumin, and pepper. Add carrots, apples, and drained currants, and toss well.
