Carrot Raisin Salad #FoodieExtravaganza

Carrot Raisin SaladHello! It’s my favorite day today! It’s Salad Day over here with the #FoodieExtravaganza bloggers! This month is celebrating an awesome line-up of salads, salads, and oh yeah….more salads! If you read this blog at all, you know I love my salads!

Today is an easy, classic salad that I remade with a yummy, healthy citrus dressing made with greek yogurt instead of mayo. It’s not the typically sweet version loaded with pineapple, because I really don’t love that one-no offense if that is your special-guy! This one…well. I love.carrot-raisin-salad

      I think so too! It’s kind of a throw-back but it is so pretty and I like all the ingredients, so why not? I bet if you tried it with craisins it would be awesome- not sure if that is better for you than raisins!
