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
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/3 cup unsalted sunflower kernels


  1. In a large serving bowl, combine the carrots, pineapple and raisins. Stir in mayonnaise. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Just before serving, add almonds and sunflower kernels; toss to coat.
