Just in the Knick of Time, 
before I pass out from complete exhaustion
I must share something sooo delish with you!

Okay let me start this off my saying I

BUT, I do make one exception, and ONLY one when it comes to Mayo.
I love love LOVE

 Carrot and Raisin Salad!

HOWEVER, today I had a slightly bad experience with it.
My mom and I had a nice lunch today, at a little country restaurant.
We both had Veggie plates. 
The food was really great, and I was SUPER excited to see that they had Carrot and Raisin Salad!

So I ordered it, 
Ate all of my other food, saving the BEST for last, only to find out that its not such the best.
I took a bite, and I could taste the MAYONNAISE, and only the Mayonnaise.
I was SO disappointed.

for you dear friends is a GOOD 
Mayo-Free recipe.

1 Pound Carrots
2 Tablespoons White Wine Vinegar
Coarse Salt and Black Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cumin 
1/8 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
1/3 Cup Raisins
1 Tablespoon Olive oil

Peel and Grate carrots
[about 4 to 5 cups]
In a large skillet over high heat bring 1 cup of water, White wine vinegar, 1 teaspoon salt,  1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper, 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes to a boil.
Add Carrots and raisins in the mix, 
toss to coat
Reduce the heat to medium, cover, and cook until the carrots are tender
[8 to 10 minutes]
Add the tablespoon of olive oil
Mix, and pour into a covered tight container
Chill until ready to serve!!

It’s really delicious when you add Pineapple Tidbits, as well as flaked Coconut!
