Use several large carrots (enough for about four cups of shredded carrot) peeled and shredded
One can of crushed pineapple (drained but reserve juice)
3 medium apples (more if you prefer), cored and diced into large chuncks
1/2 cup mayonaise
1 cup raisens
Soak raisens in reserved pineapple juice for about 5-10 minutes (do this first and then prepare carrots and apples)
Mix carrots, apples, crushed pineapple, raisens(drained from juice), and mayo together. Chill and serve! I've seen several versions of this over the years including adding nuts, coconut and other items but this simplistic country version holds my heart ...and TASTEBUDS!!
