Pineapples are one of my favorite fruits. I love the sweetness and juiciness of each pineapple chunk. I always keep a couple of canned pineapples on hand because I like to eat the chunks straight from the can for dessert.

I also love Chick-fil-a. I love their chicken and Polynesian sauce. I also love their blueberry cheesecake. My favorite part about this restaurant is their strong belief in God and their stand to preserve Christian morals in the workplace. So, while looking for a carrot salad recipe, I was excited to find a recipe similar to this awesome restaurant from Just A Pinch.

It’s very simple to make. All you need is:
4 cups of shredded carrots
1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapples
1 cup raisins
3/4 cup mayo
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 Tbsp lemon juice

Dissolve the sugar with the pineapples. Mix in remaining ingredients. Refrigerate.

We omitted the lemon juice only because we haven’t bought any lately. I let it set about 20 minutes in the refrigerator before dinner. We did have a problem with excess juice, but we tried to drain off what we could. I served it with a simple Turkey Melt.

This salad will go quickly because it is that good.
