3 cups (700 ml) grated carrots, about 3/4 pound, use a little more if you like. 1 8 oz (224 grm). can crushed pineapple in juice, drain lightly, reserve juice 1/4 cup (60 ml) raisins (I use more to my liking) 2 tablespooons mayonnaise 2 tbsp (30 ml) reserved pineapple juice 1 tsp (5 ml) sugar 1/8 tsp (1 ml) salt
Place the carrots, pineapple, and raisins in a medium bowl and toss. Combine remaining ingredients together in a small bowl; pour over carrot mixture and stir well. Chill before serving. Use reduced calorie or non-fat versions of mayonnaise if you want to have a salad that is within calorie and fat dietary restraints. Also, taste your carrots, if they are not tender and sweet, add a little extra sugar. Carrots should be a nice true orange color, slender and fairly uniform in size. Big huge carrots are often times less flavorful and "woody" textured and not a good choice for this salad. At the holidays, I jazz this recipe up by doubling it and adding some shelled pistachios and more raisins, and I always use Hellman's or Best Foods (same brand, different names for the different coasts of the USA).
