Sunny Summer Carrot Salad Recipe

When the weather gets hot I start making Carrot Salad. It is cold, sweet and great for a light meal, side dish or dessert.

You will need:

A bag or bunch of Carrots. Enough to shred into 3-4 cups worth
1/2 cup Craisins/Dried Cranberries
about a cup of diced pineapple. Fresh or frozen thawed, is best.
2 T. dried Coconut flakes.
1/2 cup of Mayo of choice.

Shred 3-4 cups of carrots in food processor. You could do this by hand, but it is a lot more work. Place in large bowl.

Now add the 1/2 cup Dried Cranberries.


The Pineapple.

2 T. Coconut (optional)

1/2 cup Mayo.

Mix together and chill in fridge for about 20 minutes. If you are hungry. You can just eat it now of course.

If you insist that this is not sweet enough, than add about 2 T. Sweetener of choice.
Time to dig in.
