Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.)

Notes

*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
