Pineapple and Carrot Salad

This pineapple and carrot salad recipe was provided by Linda, who is an avid reader of our weekly recipe magazine. When I tried out this recipe I decided to use all of the optional ingredients to, so I included in the 1/2 cup of chicken, a the few extra teaspoons of sugar.  I also substitutes in miracle whip for mayonnaise as a personal preference.

Although the salad was a little sweet it worked out well with the meal I prepared that also included my favorite baked chicken and homemade mashed potatoes recipe. 

This wonderful salad, made from pineapple and carrots sort of served as my dessert, which tasted so sweet and delicious.  

Although we recommend this as a summer time salad you could also prepare this recipe during Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday.  

If you are a fan of carrots this is the one recipe that you'll have to try out.

Speaking of the holidays, last year I decide to bring this salad to my office Christmas party. I served the salad, the presentation of the dish was great, so I was not surprised when my office mates finished of the dish.  I even received a few recipe request, which I often do, so I had printed off a few copies of the recipe ahead of time.

Enough about my experience with this recipe. Okay all that's left is for you to read over the pineapple and carrot salad recipe below and if you agree with what you see try this out.
