This carrot salad is one that you will find yourself making again and again, especially as the weather warms up a bit. It’s crunchy texture mingled with the sweetness is addicting!

So simple and so delicious, it really is one of my favorite salads to throw together for a family gathering or just to keep on hand for a quick side dish for lunch or supper. It is just as great with a sandwich or burger as it is with a chicken or fish. It just works with so much! 

I can’t make this carrot salad without thinking of my father-in-law. Whenever we’ve been together at a restaurant and he sees carrot salad on a menu, you better believe it will be a part of his order. He just loves it and I love that I can always count on him to order it! My husband if fairly similar in his carrot salad loving ways and you better believe that this recipe is one that he devours!

The pineapple and raisins, along with the carrots, add just the right amount of natural sweetness to the carrot salad that you do not need any additional sweetener for this salad. Just a light toss with mayonnaise and it’s ready! You can’t beat that!

  1. Can you use the shredded carrots available at the grocery store or do you need to shred them with a grater at home?

  2. I use the same recipe and for an additional layer of flavore I use just a dash of onion powder. Sounds strange but it works.

  3. Robyn, if I don’t want to use mayonaise (calories)…do you think greek yogurt would be a good alternative?
