Last weekend was very busy and fun. We went to our daughter's open studios show at Mill's College on Saturday. We are super proud of her and her good work. On Sunday we had a lovely Mother's Day meal at my aunt and uncles house. I brought cherry cobbler, homemade ginger ale (another post coming soon) and this coconut, carrot and raisin salad. I really like salads like this. You may have noticed that I consider many things salad fodder. This is a traditional salad that is given a little depth and interest with the addition of coconut and pineapple. My father-in-law is convinced of the health benefits of coconut and we've all been trying to work more coconut products in to our diet. Lucky for me, I LOVE coconut!
Coconut Carrot and Raisin Salad
4 cups grated carrots
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 20 oz. can crushed pineapple in juice
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 tsp. sugar or honey
Toss it all and chill until serving time. Yum!
