"This is a good side course with pasta or
other 'soft' dishes. It gives the meal some crunch and color."
2 large carrots
1 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup crushed pineapple, drained (optional)
Finely shred cleaned carrots into a bowl. Add freshly squeezed lemon juice and raisins. Add just enough low fat mayonnaise (not Miracle Whip nor non-fat) to make it moist, but not "gummy".
Stir well and let sit for at least 15 minutes, or keep in
the refrigerator for up to a day. You can get creative and add
drained crushed pineapple. I don't.
