Gary's notes for this recipe:
Lay you 10 to 1 Odds, the youngsters that shy from veggies will go for this one. That's a Challenge! And you can't get a much healthier offering than this.
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


Wash Carrots then peel, then shred.
Mix Carrots and Raisins in medium bowl, distribute well. Add the tablespoon of Mayo and 1/2 teaspoon of Sugar and mix well. I prefer Mayo over Miracle Whip.
Mix and incorporate Mayo. If you think it needs a little more Mayo add some. This is to personal preference.
Feed to Kids, or anyone else you think highly of.

Good Morningn Gary,
I just made this carrot stuff of yours this morning for my lunch and snacks.. I used lite Mayo to keep up my girlish figure (I know you don't need to worry about that). I also took the liberty of adding some cinnamon. YUMMMMMMMMY! Thanks for the tip. Really, I never thought of a mayo dressing on this type of salad. Be good today Gary. I am suspecting that's a little hard for you....

Mornin' Jane, Glad you tried the carrot stuff, and the cinnamon sounds good. Behaving hasn't been one of my high suits, but I'm working on it. It is a fuul time job. Working on it. And I do have to watch my goulish figure. I've got your Cheese and Pasta Bake and Cheese/Broccoli dishes on my must try list.

Have a Great Day. Gary

Thanks Gary, This is really delicious! and EASY! It will be great on the hot summer days coming up.

Nita, thanks for the comment. We have enjoyed this for years, and it is a good summertime side dish. The thought just dawned on me to try raisins and Craisins (Semi- Dry Cranberrys) in the next batch. The Craisins are good in salads and in cakes and bread pudding. Happy Cooking. Gary

Gary...Thanks...I make this quite often and my family loves it with Hellman's mayo and a little finely chopped walnuts. Thanks again!
