Easy Carrot Salad

5 from 22 reviews

This fresh and flavorful Carrot Salad is lightly sweetened with all natural honey and freckled with plump raisins and crisp pineapple.  It goes with so many main courses but it is particularly delicious with Oven Baked Ribs.


  • 1 lb carrots peeled and shredded
  • ⅔ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup pineapple tidbits (preferably fresh)
  • 1 cup raisins
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large bowl whisk together mayonnaise, honey and lemon juice.  Gently stir in carrots, pineapple and raisins.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Chill for 45-60 minutes before serving.


  • I like to use fresh pineapple with this recipe but you can substitute canned pineapple tidbits or even crushed pineapple.
  • Are you watching your sugar?  Simply omit the honey.  It will still be delicious as pineapple and raisins are naturally sweet.
  • Cut off the ends and peel the carrots before shredding.  It will give this carrot raisin salad a bright gorgeous orange color.
  • Feeling a little sassy!  Add 1/2 shredded shredded coconut and 1/2 chopped pecans or sunflower seeds.
  • For best results chill before serving so all the flavors meld together.
  • This dish can be prepared up to 24 hours in advance and stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • Leftovers should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
