Very good salad. Loved the crunch of the carrots with the creaminess of the dressing and the sweetness of the raisins. Holds up nicely for several days.

I made this over Memorial weekend, everyone loved it. I just found out after knowing my husband for 20 yrs this is one of his favorite salads. I never knew, so of course I had to make it. When I first made it I tried it and didn't like it. All I could taste was the miracle whip (which I don't like). After letting the salad chill for a couple of hours it was wonderful. I followed the directions exactly. This will be made often thanks MizzNezz!

Delicious! I've been looking for a recipe that reminds me of my late grandmother's carrot raisin salad. This is it. I made as directed adding only a pinch of salt and a grind of pepper at the end to counter the sweetness. Very good. Also quick & easy to prepare using the food processor. Those convenience packs of pre-shredded carrots would also be speedy in a pinch. I plan to try it with dried cranberries in place of raisins. Thanks MizzNezz.
