Years ago during our first visit to Las Vegas I discovered carrot salad. It was a delightful change. The salad was sweet with a slight tang, lovely crunchy texture and amazing flavour. I've been trying to recreate that salad ever since, finally coming up with a close clone. I just love easy recipes* but even more I love cloning recipes.
California's in Las Vegas caters to the Hawaiian crowd. I was sure there was a hint of pineapple in the salad. Not a strong, in your face flavour, just a hint. I don't put raisins in my carrot salad. I clean then shred the carrots and stir in just enough mayonnaise with a couple of tablespoons of pineapple juice to create a dressing. I don't add any sugar although some reipes have sugar and raisins added.
