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.

I used Hellman's mayo because that's what I had. Also used half and half for the milk. Delicious!! It doesn't make a huge amount, so good choice for a single or couple! MizzNezz, thank you!!

Very good! Should be made ahead of time for the flavors to blend and the raisins soften. I used light mayo and 1 cup raisins. Will make again! Thanks for sharing!

For years my father-in-law made a carrot salad that we couldn't duplicate. We couldn't until we found this recipe! It is delicious!!!

This turned out just like I hoped it would. Very good! I added about 1/2 small can crushed pineapple, drained and used low-fat mayo instead of miracle whip. It was just right. Thanks for posting!

Yummy:) It has a unique taste to it, but very good! I used craisins instead of raisins and I halved it for just 2 of us.
