This is one of my favorite comfort foods as it brings back memories of my childhood. My Mom used to make this all the time and this is her recipe......
- 2 cups grated carrots
- 1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1⁄4 teaspoon coconut extract
- 1⁄4 cup raisins
- 8 teaspoons mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- In a medium bowl, mix all ingredients well.
- Chill at least 1 hour.
This was a great and easy recipe! I only made 6 servings of it and it was great at dinner! I didn't have any coconut extract but I did have shredded coconut on hand and mixed that in instead! I will definitley make this again!
This was a quick salad to mix up when you need something fast. It also has a good flavor and not a lot of mayonnaise on it. The addition of coconut extract was a new twist for me. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
The coconut extract gives this recipe an interesting taste, but I would sprinkle it with a bit of coconut to let your guests know what there getting, just in case they don't like the taste of coconut. The raisins amount to one snack box full & the mayo 1/4 C.
