Carrot Raisin Salad

Carrot Raisin Salad

3 cups carrots, shredded *
1/2 cup raisins, soaked **
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
Salt to taste
Optional: 1 cup chopped apple, or well drained crushed pineapple

In a medium bowl, combine the shredded carrots, raisins, mayonnaise, lemon juice, sugar, and salt.  Add one or more of the optional ingredients.  Mix well and chill prior to serving time.

*Use a cheese grater to shred the carrots by hand BUT be VERY careful you do not catch your knuckles on it.  Trust me, it hurts!

**Soak the raisins in warm water to soften and plump them, then drain on paper towel and press out excess liquid.

*Children should always be supervised when preparing or cooking in the kitchen.
