I love to find salad dishes I can make for my family that aren’t your traditional salad recipes. Carrot Raisin Salad is delicious and my kids hardly notice the fruits and veggies in it, so it’s simple to get them to eat it! In fact, they eat it without complaining each time!
If you want another delicious side that’s loaded with veggies, try out this Skillet Mushroom Asparagus recipe!
What You Need
2 cups shredded carrots
1/2 cup raisins
1 large apple (I used a Fuji apple)
1/2 cup fresh pineapple, diced
1/3 cup purple seedless grapes, halved
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
How To Make Carrot Raisin Salad
Core, peel and dice the apple. Add the apple to a small mixing bowl and toss with lemon juice (this will keep the apple from browning).
In a large mixing bowl, add all of the ingredients and gently toss to coat.
Cover and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
Keep your Carrot Raisin Salad refrigerated and covered in an airtight container for up to 2-3 days. This is a great recipe to make ahead for family gatherings at your house, or even at a different location. This dish travels well and will stay cool in a cooler for even a few hours in the car.
I love to bring this Carrot Raisin Salad to potlucks! It’s always a hit and a great balance to the heavy sides and main dishes that are normally there. Plus, it’s so easy to make it takes minimal effort on my part to make an acceptable dish!
Do you have a dish you normally bring to a family get together or church potluck? If it’s simple, share the recipe with us in the comments! We’d love to hear it!
