READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Nyteglori

You can use lettuce instead of spinach in this. You can use cooked carrots in this instead of raw if desired.

I was looking for a substitute for the Mayonaise that is usually in the Southern carrot and raisin salad. This dressing is grand....I did not do the recipe as it is written, since I already had grated my carrot, added chopped dates, since someone ate my raisin stash, and had chopped candied ginger for heat. Gonna roast some almonds now, after reading the recipe. Thanks you.
