I made this salad for Easter to go with our ham. It was very good and nowhere as sweet as I thought it would be - which was good. Instead of pineapple tidbits I used crushed pineapple and left out the celery. Everyone enjoyed it even my 6 year old who hates all things vegetable. I would definitely make this again. Great recipe!

Thought this salad was a little tasteless. Wasn't quite sure what was "creamy salad dressing". Is that Mayo? Next time might use cole slaw dressing. Read More

This one brings back memories of childhood. My mom used to add a tablespoon or two of peanut butter to the dressing. It made for a nice variation. We don't care for marshamallow in anything. I left those and the sugar out of the mix. I felt the raisins pineapple and carrots themselves were sweet enough. Thanks for sharing. Read More

Sounds odd but since it got great reviews and 5 stars I decided to try it. It was a hit!! Very good. I didnt use celery since I didnt have any and I would have to say it wasnt missing it. Tasted great without it. Thanks for the great recipe. Read More

Yummy. Served this with spicy chicken enchilada soup. Nice contrast and it instantly put out the 'fire'. Read More

Wonderful salad both pleasing to the eye as well as the palate! I did substitute Splenda for the sugar and used crushed pineapple as that is what I had on hand. This is definitely a recipe that I will use again and again. Thank you Carol! Read More
