Ingredients

  • 1 pound rainbow or orange carrots peeled and ends removed
  • 1 medium sweet or tart apple peeled and quartered
  • 1 small fennel bulb stems and outer layer trimmed off
  • 3 scallions
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup salted pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup chopped, toasted hazelnuts

Dressing

  • 1/4 cup full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt or to taste

Instructions

  • Cut the carrots in half, so they fit into the mouth of a food processor fitted with the grating blade. Pulse the food processor until they are grated.
    If you don't have a food processor, you can grate the carrots with a julienne peeler or a mandolin.
  • Repeat with the apple and fennel bulb.
  • Toss all of the grated vegetables in a large mixing bowl.
  • Slice the scallions lengthwise into thin strip, with a sharp knife. Next, slice the strips into 1-inch pieces. Add the scallions to the bowl and toss everything.
  • Sprinkle the cranberries, pumpkin seeds and hazelnuts over everything and toss. Set the slaw aside while you make the dressing.

Dressing

  • Combine all of the ingredients together in a jar or measuring cup and shake or stir well to combine. Taste and extra salt as desired, or adjust any seasons.
  • Pour the dressing over the slaw, and toss to combine. Let the slaw sit for 20-30 minutes so the flavors can combine.
