I have made carrot salad in many variations for many years, but this is my favourite. I don't always have all three fruits to put into it, but I do try to have two out of the three at least. This is so cool and refreshing. It makes a great accompaniment to my Lamb Curry. Cook time is chill time, although it will keep, if well sealed, for 24 hours in the fridge.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and grate the carrots.
  2. Chop the pineapple, peel and section the orange and cut the segments in half, and core and chop the apple.
  3. Mix the carrots, prepared fruits and raisins in a medium sized bowl.
  4. Squeeze the oranges, and mix the juice with the olive oil, mustard and salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Toss the dressing with the salad.
  6. Serve chilled.

I would never have believed that carrots, pineapple, oranges and Dijon mustard would combine into something so tasty. My DH and I enjoyed the flavors and the good healthy benefits from eating all those fresh ingredients. A good recipe, Jenny Sanders!

My husband & I like this but it needs a little something. I'm not sure what! Maybe the juice of a lemon or lime. It is worth trying again. Thanks for the idea. Teena

This was so easy to make and delicious! I made it for a small dinner party, and my guests loved it. One of my guests is gluten intolerant and this is a great gluten-free dish to serve. (Note: to ensure it is gluten free, the vinegar in the mustard should be wine vinegar. I used King Soopers/Kroger's Premium Select Brand).
