Chick-Fil-A's "Authentic" Carrot & Raisin Salad

Kim Biegacki


This is now an authentic recipe for Chick-fil-A salad as they shared it with me on my Facebook page when I tagged them in my picture of this salad. So, I've updated the amounts and now you can be assured it is exactly like the one you used to get when they sold it.

My Aunt Linda has been asking me to find this recipe for awhile now. I took her to Chick-fil-A for her first experience of the food and she fell in love with this salad too. She wants to offer it at her restaurant she loves it so much.

Hope you enjoy.
