Ingredients

  • 3 cups carrots, finely grated
  • 1 - 8 ounce can crushed pineapple or pineapple pieces, well drained
  • 4 tablespoons flaked coconut
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise

Method

Step 1

In a medium bowl, combine carrots, pineapple, coconut and sugar. Add mayonnaise and mix well. Refrigerate until ready to eat.

Variation:

  • Take out the coconut and pineapple and replace them with a cup of raisins for a traditional raisin carrot salad.

Just mix this wonderful salad, refrigerate it and take it out when you need it. It’s a great do ahead salad that makes life that little bit easier on the cook.

That’s always my goal!

Take this easy salad recipe to a picnic or barbecue, or serve it on an every day family dinner night. It’s a wonderful vegetable side dish.

The bonus? It’s pretty healthy too. I would cut down on the sugar, but otherwise the ingredients are all fairly healthy.
