Carrot-Celery Slaw With Yogurt Dressing

For a healthy take on coleslaw, we developed a yogurt dressing recipe for this crunchy salad. A blend of plain yogurt, olive oil, Dijon mustard, garlic, and salt coats the shredded carrots and celery stalks. Fresh chives garnish the easy dish, which makes for a great lightened-up side dish to burgers or barbecue chicken sandwiches. Next time the kids request hot dogs for dinner, you can agree with a smile, and put this simple salad on the side to work a some vegetables into the meal. And since this dish lacks the typical mayonnaise-laden dressing, leftovers keep well in the fridge—perfect for a fresh salad the next day.
