Our carrot salad recipe has become simpler over the years, finally resulting in this clean tasting, no fuss version which kids and adults both love. We eat tons of this all summer long!

You can vary the recipe by using bagged broccoli slaw or cabbage - or a combination of those with the carrots. And if you don't like raisins, try diced apples or drained, crushed pineapple.

How to Make Carrot Salad: No Fuss Favorite

Step-by-Step

  • 1Grate carrots, or buy a bag already grated for extra ease. The medium hole size on the box grater is perfect.
  • 2Add raisins. We like golden raisins, but black raisins work well, too. Or try dried cranberries, diced, peeled apple, or drained crushed pineapple.
  • 3In a small cup, mix vinegar, salt and sugar to taste. It should be sweet-tart. Some rice vinegar is already seasoned with sugar and salt - if yours is, back off on these additions.
  • 4Mix dressing into carrots & raisins. Serve immediately, or let stand. Over time, the raisins get plumper and juicier. This is great for at least 3 days in the fridge.
