This colorful traditional salad is one of my mother-in-law's favorites. It's fun to eat because of its crunchy texture, and the raisins give a slightly sweet flavor. Plus, it's easy to prepare. —Denise Baumert, Dalhart, Texas

I loved this with the raisins, but added a few small diced apples with the raisins and it was fantastic! I'm going to try honey instead of sugar next time, I bet that would be good too

This is such a good and different salad for any occasion. I used 1/2 cup raisins and increased the mayo to 1/3 cup. Delicious!
