Almonds and sunflower kernels give a pleasing crunch to this speedy variation on traditional carrot-raisin salad. If you prefer a nuttier flavor, use 1/2 cup of sunflower kernels instead of 1/3 cup. —Barb Hunter, Ponder, Texas
- 3 cups shredded carrots
- 2 cups unsweetened crushed pineapple, drained
- 1/2 cup golden raisins

- 1/2 cup sliced almonds
- 1/3 cup unsalted sunflower kernels

"It needs flavoring - it's rather bland. I omitted the almonds & reduced the mayo amount."

"I make this recipe often. I do however eliminate the nuts and sunflower seeds."
