Carrot, Pineapple and Raisin Salad

Super fast quick and easy to make salad that is healthy and delicious and is also good to take for lunches as a salad or to fill a bread roll or Pita pocket  for a quick healthy lunch on the run.
  • Two large carrots - grated

  • Handful of raisins

  • 1/2 a tin of pineapple pieces (drained)  or use fresh if available

  • Sprinkling of cold pressed olive oil

  • Juice of one orange (lemon is fine too if you prefer more tart taste)

  • Seasoning to taste - salt and pepper, gomasio or your choice of seasoning

  • Combine all ingredients

  • Stir through and let stand for at least half an hour - better longer

  • Garnish with finely chopped Italian parsley or chopped chives

  • Extra delicious with pine nuts added
We make this often and its great with cold meats, or a crusty loaf and green salad and optional  extras can be added  like cashew nuts or  swapping  the pineapple for orange segments or exchanging  the orange juice for pineapple juice.  Use this recipe for a starting point and be experimental and see how many favorites you can come up with.
