finely chopped celery
Very good basic salad. I used a little less mayo than was indicated and used pecans instead of walnuts since that's what I had on hand. I also chopped up one and a half red delicious apples and tossed them in a little lemon juice to keep them from browning and added those to the salad. It gives the salad a great crunch and some more substance.
my family thought this was so so
I loved it! I made it twice. The second time I added half the amount of mayo and sour cream and my family liked it even better.
This salad is excellent! Love the walnuts and coconut in it! Will try next time with fat-free mayo and sour cream to decrease the fat content but will definitely make again.
GOOD AND EASY. I USED 20 OZ. CAN DRAINED CRUSHED PINEAPPLE INSTEAD OF COCONUT. I USED FAT FREE SOUR CREAM,AND CHOPPED THE WALNUTS A LITTLE. I ADDED ABOUT A TEASPOON OF PEPPER.
This was Fabulous!!! I didn't have any walnuts so I substituted pecans, and it was still great! There wasn't but a tiny bit left after I took it to a Cub Scout Banquet! Terrific flavors. And the coconut was an added bonus. definitely a make again salad!
It is the Carrot Salad that my Aunt Alice made. She would make it on a handheld grater as electic shredders were not made yet, for special dinners like Easter, Thanksgiving and dinner parties that my parents would have. I mayself made for family dinners. The only thing that was different was there was no suger used as my dad was a diabetic(sp)and she and I used mayo or the salad dressing that many use for mayo instead of creamy salad dressing and nothing was mesured (sp). I will be making this for my family very soon.
This was great for finding a new way to introduce carrots to my 2 year old. We absolutely loved the flavors. The only change we made is substituting Splenda instead of sugar. Definitely will make again. Wonderful summer dish to keep the heat out of the kitchen!
