This Carrot Apple Raisin Salad with a citrus dressing is so easy and delicious. Perfect for as a side dish or light lunch salad on it’s own!
Is it just me or are side dishes at dinner, the forgotten dish? After getting dinner ready….it feels like that’s all I can manage sometimes. Am I the only one? I’m guessing not but either way, this Carrot Apple Raisin Salad is so easy that I no longer have the laziness excuse! With just a handful of ingredients, it come together so quickly that when you try it you will no doubt feel the same.
I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t sure how the addition of raisins would taste, but it totally works! The crunchiness with the carrots and apples work together for a slightly sweet salad. This is one of those recipes that I found in a collection of favorite recipes from a “church” cookbook. I knew it would be a winner the first time I tried it because those cookbooks are most often filled with family favorites. This Carrot Apple Raisin Salad is a favorite of my family. My husband especially loves it! It’s got just the right amount of crunchiness that makes it the perfect companion to grilled chicken or pork or just on it’s own. I almost always have all these ingredients on hand so there’s another reason I won’t have any more excuses not to make a side dish for dinner! It’s part of the rotation with many of the other healthy vegetable sides recipes I rounded up awhile back.
I hope you’ll give it a try!
