Don’t you love recipes that remind you of your childhood? I have many recipes that I love to make just because it brings back great memories. It’s also great though when the recipe is delicious!
This Carrot Raisin Salad was pretty much a staple in my family growing up. I appreciate that my parents wanted to find ways for us to be a little more healthy by getting us to eat more vegetables.
I think making this Carrot Raisin Salad was my parents way of getting us to eat carrots! My dad would always say “eat your carrots, it will grow hair on your chest!” Not exactly what a little girl wants to imagine will happen.
Needless to say, it was always one of my favorite salads and I absolutely love anything with carrots in it. It’s simple and delicious and full of vitamins!
