Carrot Apple Salad

My Mom found this recipe a couple of years ago on  We adjusted it slightly to make it our own.  I absolutely love having a bowl of it in the fridge!  It's great for taking to potlucks or large gatherings.  I know it is a favorite at our families' parties.  This is scaled up to 12 servings.  You can easily chop the ingredients in half or a fourth if you wish.

Carrot Apple Salad

2 (8 ounce) cans unsweetened crushed pineapple

4 medium tart apples, diced

6 cups shredded carrots

1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons raisins

1 1/3 cup plain yogurt

1 heaping tablespoon honey

1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons mayonnaise

2 tablespoons lemon juice


Drain pineapple, reserving the juice in a bowl.  Add the apples to the juice; toss to coat.  Let stand for 5 minutes; drain.  In a large bowl, combine the pineapple, carrots, raisins, and apples.  In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.  Pour over carrot mixture and toss to coat.  Cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours or until chilled.
