  • 1 lb carrots, shredded
  • 1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple, strained (separated)

  • 1-1/2 cups shredded, unsweetened coconut
Instructions
  1. Peel and shred the carrots (a food processor with shredding disk is very helpful for this) and place in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Chop the nuts and toss them in as well.
  3. Add in the raisins, mayo, pineapple, and coconut.
  4. Stir everything very well to fully combine and coat, then add in pineapple juice a little at a time to adjust the sweetness and the creaminess of the dressing.
  5. You can store this sealed in the fridge up to about a week.
