Carrot Raisin Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 9, 2014

"Sounds delicious. My recipe is close (?) except that I use a bit more mayo and no milk. Plus, I add 1/4 cup par-boiled salted peanuts per pound of carrots for extra crunch. Gentle boil for 5 minutes; soak for 15 min; drain, add to the carrot/mayo mixture."

"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"
