Carrot Raisin Salad

This was one of the first things I learned to make. It is very easy. I love carrots, but do not like mayonnaise at all. Most of the recipes I had seen were loaded with mayonnaise - yuck. Then, in my late teens I discovered Chick Fil-A's carrot raisin salad, which is very good, and doesn't have much mayonnaise. So, with a little help form my mom, we came up with this recipe.

Carrot Raisin Salad



Ingredients:
  • 3/4 Cup crushed pineapple
  • 3/4 Cup raisins
  • 1/4 Cup mayonnaise (you won't taste it - I promise!)
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 1 lb. Carrots

Directions:
  1. Drain pineapple.
  2. In a medium size bowl, combine raisins, mayonnaise, sugar and drained pineapple.
  3. Refrigerate raisin/pineapple mixture while doing step #3; this allows raisins to plump.
  4. Peel and shred carrots.
  5. Combine carrots with raisin/pineapple mixture. Refrigerate until serving.

Notes:
This salad is best served cold and prepared a day ahead.
