|Carrot and Raisin Salad|
Carrot and raisin salad is another one of those old-fashioned corner deli favorites. Simple to make, better to eat!
Surprise, I LOVED it! And that’s strange since I am not a lover of carrots. I don’t hate them, but I don’t love them either. I’m sort of, “I can take them or leave them,” especially raw carrots.
|Try it with roast pork!|
This I actually tend to eat as a dessert. Combined, the carrots and raisins sort of meld into a flavor all their own, helped along by the simple but sweet dressing.
This also goes lovely with a pork roast or baked pork chops. Substitute this for the candied apples and/or applesauce. And the colors make this a nice early fall combination.
|Nice and sweet|
I was surprised to hear from a southern friend that this is also very big down south. When it comes to food, you learn something new every day!
