1Wash, peel, then shred carrots. (Or buy a bag of shredded carrots if in a hurry.) I prefer to shred my own as they're finer in texture.
2Mix carrots, raisins, mayo and lemon juice. Chill 30 minutes.
3Open pineapple can and stir in 1 tbls. sugar until dissolved. Add this to the
carrot mixture and chill until serving.
