Carrot Raisin Salad!

 
 
 If you are a fan of  the carrot salad at Chick-fil-A, you have to try this recipe.  It's the closest I have found to it.  Also, if you are trying to offer a bit healthier alternatives, this is full of good for you ingredients!  
 
I think this "Carrot Raisin Salad" will be really great for Easter or for other Springtime events you might be hosting!  This is really good as a side with sandwiches, like  Mama's Pimento Cheese  or Mama's Pecan Chicken Salad!
 
Here is what you will need for this:
 
3 cups shredded carrots
1 stalk celery, diced small (optional)
1 (8 oz.) can of crushed pineapple, slightly drained
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbs. lemon juice
1 Tbs. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
 
 
Mix the shredded carrots, celery, crushed pineapple and raisins in a mixing bowl.   In a separate bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the lemon juice, sugar and salt
 
Pour over the carrot mixture and toss to mix.   Chill until ready to serve!

  1. My grandmother & great grandmother (both deceased now) have made this exact recipe back in the 1950's. This is not a new recipe that Chick-fil- A uses.
