Carrot Raisin Salad for Two Recipe

Carrot Raisin Salad for Two Recipe

IF YOU like carrots, here's a great recipe. It's easy to prepare and healthy. My mother made it every holiday, using either regular or golden raisins. This was one of the first recipes I tried on my husband when we were newlyweds. He was skeptical because he didn't like raisins, but now this is one of his favorite salads. -Marlene Reilly, Nescopeck, Pennsylvania
