  • ½ cup raisins
  • 1 cup warm water or apple juice (or use leftover pineapple juice)
  • 1 small can of pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 1 pound carrots
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar


  • Put raisins in a cup of very warm water (or warmed up apple juice) so they plump back up.
  • Once they plump up, drain water or juice.
  • Drain pineapple of excess juices.
  • Peel carrots and then grate them.
  • If making a double batch of this salad, it may be faster to use the grater on your food processor.
  • In a medium bowl, toss grated carrots with mayo and sugar.
  • Then add in raisins and pineapple and stir until combined.
  • Cover and put in the fridge to chill thoroughly. Give it another good stir before serving.
