The other day, I caught the Barefoot Contessa on the Food Network Channel. Everything Ina Garten makes looks delicious and the few I've tried work out well. But this Carrot Salad is the best ever. And so Easy too.
I have to share it with you - I only made one change to it - Please try this - you won't be disappointed.
1/3 cup golden raisins
1 pound carrots
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup sour cream (I used plain Yogurt instead)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup diced fresh pineapple (Can pineapple worked fine)
Place the raisins in a small bowl and cover with boiling water. Allow to sit
for 5 minutes and then drain.
Fit a food processor with the grating blade. Cut the carrots in half and place
in the feed tube so they are lying on their sides. Process in batches. Place
the grated carrots in a medium bowl, add the lemon juice and toss.
For the dressing, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, sugar and salt.
Pour the dressing over the carrots and add the pineapple and raisins. Toss
together and serve.
