Kids: Use a box grater to shred the carrots. Be very careful with the shredder, or get an adult to do it.
For best flavor, let the salad rest at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.
- 2 large carrots, trimmed, peeled and shredded
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/4 cup walnut pieces (optional)
- 1/4 cup prepared honey mustard dressing
Combine the carrots, raisins, walnuts (if using) and dressing in a medium bowl; mix well and let the mixture sit for about 30 minutes at room temperature before serving.
