Carrot & Apple Salad

Even though I made up this salad this week, I think it would be best for fall, when both apples and carrots are in season. But I happened to have an apple on hand, plus some grated carrots, and the dish naturally came together. Perhaps you might recognize that the classic Waldorf Salad is in its pedigree, but I actually prefer this combination. This is a zingy, refreshing salad full of crunch, appropriate with a light lunch or as a dinner starter.
