This recipe is a classic one from my childhood. Since I don't have the recipe handy, I'm just going to make it up from memory. With only three ingredients, its easy and inexpensive. And - most kids like it!
You'll use this recipe as a side dish for BBQs, or even another great tasting dish for wedding or baby showers.
Let nostalgia reign. And good eyesight (from the carrots) will be a wonderful side effect.
2 1/2 c. shredded carrots (use full-sized carrots and a grater)
3/4 c. raisins
3-4 T. light mayonnaise
Grate the carrots into a large bowl. Add raisins, mayo and combine.
Serve immediately, or refrigerate until mealtime. This is a great salad to prepare ahead of time. 12-24 hours will allow the flavors to combine well. Keeps in the fridge for about 2-3 days.
Sweet, healthy goodness!
