Carrot & Raisin Salad



  • two large cleaned carrots
  • 1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup drained crushed pineapple


Finely grate two large cleaned carrots into a bowl. Add 1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice and 1/2 cup raisins. Add just enough low fat mayonnaise (not miracle whip, and not non fat) to make it moist but not "gommy". Stir well and let it sit for 15 minutes till it takes to cook your main course. Of course, you can make this ahead and let it sit in the refrigerator for a day if you wish. You can also get creative and add 1/2 cup drained crushed pineapple. This is a good side course with the ravioli dishes below: It gives a "soft" meal a bit of crunch and color, adding a bit of sweetness as well.
