Carrot Apple Salad

Recipe By :JoAnna Lund
Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Fruits Salads and Salad Dressings

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups shredded carrots
1 cup chopped apples -- unpeeled (2 small)
1/4 cup raisins, seedless
2 tablespoons chopped pecans
1/3 cup fat-free mayonnaise
sugar substitute -- to equal 2 teaspoons sugar (1 packet)
1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice -- (omit if for Jim)
1 teaspoon lemon juice

In a medium bowl, combine carrots, apples, raisins, and pecans. In a small bowl, make dressing by stirring together mayonnaise, sugar substitute, spice, and lemon juice. Toss lightly to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.

-- You can use 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1/8 teaspoon ginger instead of apple-pie spice.
-- To plump raisins without "cooking," place in glass measuring cup and microwave on high for 15 seconds.

NOTES : I like this as is, but my husband prefers it without the spice so I leave that out. I use golden seedless raisins and plump them according to JoAnna's hint. This is so good that I typically make a double batch, and I usually add a can of crushed pineapple -- I reserve the juice and mix it with the dressing ingredients. (That would be too much juice if making just a single batch of the salad.)
