Comments

I make this and add 8 oz can of crushed pineapple. You can drain it or use the juice in place of the orange juice.

I like to add a small handful of chopped nuts or seeds - chopped almonds or sunflower seeds are my favorite in this salad.

I liked the carrot and raisin combo.  It seemed a little unusual at first but it tasted really good!
