Carrot Salad with Raisins Recipe: Amazingly Easy

Updated on January 13, 2013

Refreshing Side Salad

This is a favorite for many. If you have never tried it, you must. Goes great with a variety of main courses, or sandwiches...even BBQ. Grate or shred fresh carrots or buy the package already shredded or grated if you are in a hurry. Very healthy too, carrots are loaded with vitamin A.

Need a quick snack? Have a bowl of carrot salad already made...have it as a snack or take some for lunch to work. Delicious!


  • 4 Cups Carrots, shredded or grated, (also available in package, ready to use shredded or grated)
  • 1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Cup Raisins
  • 1 Cup Pineapple Chunks (optional), Canned, Drained
  • 1 Tablespoon Mustard good!

  1. In medium bowl, combine all ingredients above, by tossing gently. Include the pineapple chunks if desired, optional.
  2. Ready to eat! May cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Enjoy!
