We're betting everyone will go crazy over this fun shredded carrot salad that has plump raisins in every bite. Crazy Carrot Salad might just be the perfect go-along for your grilled or picnic favorites.

What You'll Need:
  • 6 medium carrots (about 1 pound), shredded
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 small head lettuce, shredded
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except lettuce; mix well.
     
  2. Place lettuce on a platter and spoon carrot mixture over the top.
     
  3. Serve immediately, or chill until ready to serve.
Note

For a contemporary twist on traditional carrot salad, you might want to substitute sweetened dried cranberries for the raisins and baby spinach for the lettuce. Make it your own!

For a really yummy and different sweet and salty variation, try substituting salad (green) olives for the raisins. (Omit the sugar) My Mother made it that way for years - from back in the 1940's.

Sorry-I meant to say use the pineapple in place of shredded lettuce.

An alternative version that everyone seems to like when I make it is to use a cup or two of drained crushed pineapple
