THIS RECIPE is a favorite of mine not only because it's delicious, but because it was given to me by a very dear friend.
I take this dish to many different gatherings and often, get requests for the recipe. It's a wonderful side dish, compatible with any meal.
WE'VE always taken advantage of the fresh produce we're fortunate to have almost year-round.
I prepare carrots often, since they're so nutritious and versatile. This dish is one of my favorites. It can be prepared a few days ahead of time, so it's easy when you're planning to serve it for a special meal.

MY HUSBAND and I agree - this salad is one of our favorites. The yogurt gives it a unique flavor, and the nuts add extra crunch.
I don't remember where I discovered this recipe, but it's nutritious, tasty and adds color to any meal.

IF YOU like carrots, here's a great recipe. It's easy to prepare and healthy. My mother made it every holiday, using either regular or golden raisins.
This was one of the first recipes I tried on my husband when we were newlyweds. He was skeptical because he didn't like raisins, but now this is one of his favorite salads.

THIS RECIPE originally didn't call for green pepper, but when I was making it one time, I noticed some in the refrigerator and decided to add it.
It gave a little extra zip, so I've kept it a part of the recipe. This makes ordinary carrots special and adds nice color to a meal.

I WORK in a beauty salon, and one of my clients shared this recipe with me many years ago.
The name of this dish intrigued me, so I gave it a try. It's a refreshing summer favorite, and now, it goes hand in hand with barbecue at our house.

MY HUSBAND suggested I share this salad recipe. It's one of his favorites, which I created long ago in a moment of panic.
I'd opened the refrigerator to get out the makings for green salad and discovered I had only a couple lettuce leaves. The cottage cheese was a perfect substitute.
