Recipe: Apple salad with figs and almonds

Dietitian's tip: Figs — a sweet fruit with soft flesh and tiny edible seeds — are a good source of iron, calcium and phosphorus. Dried figs are a good source of fiber. You can eat figs raw, with or without their peel, or use them in baked goods.

Serves: 6


2 large red apples, cored and diced
6 dried figs, chopped
2 ribs of celery, diced
1/2 cup fat-free lemon yogurt
2 tablespoons slivered almonds
2 carrots, peeled and grated


In a small bowl, combine the apples, figs and celery. Add yogurt and mix thoroughly. Serve on separate plates topped with almonds and garnished with grated carrots.
