There’s nothing better than a fresh salad during the summer, am I right? On hot summer days, a cool, refreshing salad is what I crave the most. They seem to go with everything whether you’re having burgers and hot dogs for dinner or t-bone steaks. This salad is truly something special and is a sweet addition to any meal. It’s made with carrots, crushed pineapple, Greek yogurt, raisins and pecans.

I was at the store this past week and saw these gorgeous bunches of organic carrots and I couldn’t resist picking them up. We have carrots growing in our garden right now but they are just babies.

The purple and yellow carrots are just too pretty for words! I was inspired to make this carrot salad, a recipe we have been enjoying for years, in a more “rainbow” fashion. Using multiple color of carrots, as well as golden and regular raisins, makes this salad something special. But please don’t hesitate to make the salad with regular orange carrots and raisins- it’s still a show stopper.
