A Healthy Carrot Salad

Not long ago, I mentioned shifting to eating more raw foods.  I'm still working on expanding that repertoire. Last night, I tried a healthier carrot salad that's a keeper.

Carrot Salad

2-3 cups shredded carrots
1 oz. packet of Craisins soaked in water for 5 mins
1/2 cup plain yogurt
8 oz. crushed pineapple with juice

Combine and enjoy.  I used 3+ cups of carrots, instead of the 2c called for in the recipe, 1/2 can of pineapple instead of the whole can, and craisins in place of 1/2 cup raisins.  Improvise with what you like and what's on hand.  I wanted an alternative to a mayonnaise-based salad, and this fits the bill nicely.  It's hard to believe this is my 400th post.  Happy Friday!
