  • 5 medium carrot
  • 2 medium orange
  • 1/4 cup oil, avocado
  • 1/2 cup yogurt, plain
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar, white wine
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds


  • The dressing ingredients can go right into a pint mason jar with a lid to shake it up – dressing done!
  • Put the julienne peeled carrots into a medium mixing bowl, pour about half the dressing, and combine. Depending on your taste, you can add more dressing.
  • If you want the carrots to have a much softer texture for littler ones chewing, you can “sweat” the julienned carrots in a colander with few pinches of sea salt. The salt draws out moisture in the carrots and makes them have a softer texture. After they sweat about 20 minutes you can toss the carrots with the dressing.
