  • 4 cups shredded/grated organic carrots
  • 8 oz can of crushed pineapple and juice (no sugar added)
  • 3/4 cup organic raisins
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon (about 1 1/2 Tbsp)
  • 1 Tbsp virgin coconut oil (optional)


Thoroughly mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl. Refrigerate for one hour before serving. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.


The amount of mayonnaise is a personal choice. The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup of mayo. I suggest you start with 1/3 and add a little more if you prefer. If you can’t eat eggs or don’t have access to good quality mayo, you could get closer to a Ray Peat type carrot salad by subbing some coconut oil and a little apple cider vinegar in place of the mayo.

If your raisins are not already plump, before adding them you can pour some boiling/hot water over them in a separate small bowl and let them steep a few minutes until plump.
