Carrot-Apple-Coconut Salad March 16, 2013

Filed under: GAPS,Recipes — Lauren @ 9:34 am

2 large peeled apples-shredded or sliced

5 carrots- shredded

½ C unsweetened shredded coconut

½ C walnuts-chopped

1 C homemade yogurt (may be less, enough to coat)

¼ C raisins

Juice of 1 lime or ½ lemon

Zest of 1 lime/lemon


  1. Shredded carrots/apples in food processor.
  2. Mix yogurt, juice, zest and honey together in the bowl with a top.
  3. Add in carrot/apple mix and remaining ingredients.
  4. Mix together well, serve, put the rest in fridge.



  • Try with golden raisins and pecans.
  • Instead of shredding apples, use the food processor that ‘slices’ into thin apple chunks. This brings a different texture.
  • You can double this recipe making a large amount, keep in the fridge for the week conveniently.
  • Replace the walnuts with sunflower seeds to reduce the cost of this even more.







This is a great kid snack (adults too!), side dish or easy dish to bring to an event/potluck. You will find yourself going back again and again to this recipe as the flavors are so tasty together and you always have ingredients on hand! It’s also a pretty cheap grain-free snack
