Growing up my Mom almost always had a salad to accompany our dinner.  Salads are my favorite thing to eat; healthy, versatile, easy to throw together.  But if you think about having a salad with every dinner throughout the year that is a lot of salads and they can get boring real fast.  Creativity is the key to keeping the family healthy and eating their greens and veggies.

4 Ingredient Carrot Raisin Salad

4 Ingredient Carrot Raisin Salad was one of the simple salads my Mom would make us.  When I was visiting my Mom in Tennessee last week she made this salad and it reminded me how much I like it.  I was excited to share it with you guys because of its simplicity for those busy days.  It is perfect for a family of 4 or 5 and easy to throw together, taking about 10 minutes.  This would also be a great salad to double and take to a picnic.

You will notice that I used low fat plain yogurt for the dressing in this recipe but if you prefer you can use half mayonnaise and half yogurt. I also use regular raisins but I have used golden raisins and dried cranberries and those taste great as well.

Oh, Julia! So beautifully simple! You know I adore easy, healthy recipes, and this one has all that in spades! Looove it! :D Exactly the kind of thing busy mommies need to have in their back pockets to pull out when they get a last-minute dinner invite and need to whip up something fast! Who wouldn't love adding this to their picnic or buffet table! Pinning for sure!
