Carrot and apple salad
2 large carrots made about 4 cups of shredded carrots.
My mom use to make a carrot/raisin salad. I had a recipe stashed away, that I could make it later.
Well, after I made this, I found out that my dear husband does not like carrot salad..I even left out the raisins and other items because he absolutely will not eat a raisin.
Needless to say I had to eat most of this huge bowl of carrot salad..And it was mighty good!
Original recipe was from a Safeway flyer.

2In a large bowl, add the shredded carrots, apple chunks, walnuts, and any options that you want to add to this salad..
3In another small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, sugar and salt. Take a taste. If it is to your liking..you are ready to stir this dressing into your carrot mixture.
I mixed this dressing with my hands so that I incorporated the dressing mix to cover all the pieces..Make sure that the apples are covered with dressing or they may turn color.
4Chill for a few hours..(the original recipe said not to make it the day before...but I saw no difference as it took a few days to eat.)
I also added some left over pineapple chunks to my salad and almost opened another large can, but refrained, as I did not want any more leftover pineapple.
Enjoy with your dinner or as a snack for lunch.
