Raisin, Rice and Carrot Salad

Raisin, Rice and Carrot Salad created by januarybride

A light, refreshing salad from the California Raisin website; definintely a make-ahead recipe as it gets better on day 2 and 3. I think it would be grand made with wheatberries and served as a main course! NOTE: I made this using low fat mayo and fat free buttermilk and my dressing was too thin, so I had to add an extra tbsp of mayo to thicken it up. And next time, I will add some apple cut into small matchsticks.

    I used regular mayo along with a reduced fat buttermilk, that that worked fine for me! Also took your suggestion & included some thin apple sticks from a fresh Fuji apple! You have a great tasting salad here, & a definite keeper recipe ~ Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for the VIP in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap 24]
