Shredded Carrot Raisin & Pineapple Salad
Shredded carrots, juicy pineapple & sweet plump raisins all tossed in a simple creamy greek yogurt dressing! This delicious carrot raisin & pineapple salad is the perfect make-ahead side dish to cool down during spring & summer!
Servings: 6 servings
- 4 cups shredded carrots
- 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks, sliced (canned pineapple can be used instead)*
- ½ cup raisins (regular or golden)
- ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
Whisk your greek yogurt, mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar and maple syrup together in a bowl until well combined then set it aside.
Next add your shredded carrots, sliced pineapple and raisins to a large bowl. Pour your desired amount of dressing over the top and toss the salad until it's evenly coated.
Cover your salad and let it chill in the fridge for 30 minutes - 1 hour before serving. (The longer your salad sits, the more flavorful it will become. I'd suggest giving it a good stir right before serving as some of the juices might fall to the bottom of the bowl.)
*If using canned pineapple chunks, drain them completely before slicing and adding them to your salad.
(The easiest ways to shred your carrots are to use a cheese grater or a food processor with the "shredding" blade attachment.)
If you prefer more dressing on your salad, I'd suggest adding another ½ recipe of the dressing ingredients. Here are the measurements below:
- 2 Tbsp plain Greek yogurt
- 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup
