The Original Chick-Fil-A Carrot and Raisin Salad Recipe
This is a recipe that is so simple and so obvious. The ingredients are obvious to almost anyone who cooks, but it’s the measurements that one must get just right. It’s a salad that I remember being served at family gatherings, school lunches, and of course I remember it as an option at Chick-Fil-A.
I’m not a fan of Carrot and Raisin Salad, but I’m sure that there are plenty of folks who will enjoy this recipe. I’m not sure how much of it is the raw carrot and how much of it is the mayonnaise thing, but together it equals a big fat NO GO for me! I prefer my carrots cooked and mayonnaise never. Myself, I prefer a green salad or even my own potato salad. What kind of salad do you like best?
