Tammy Nichols is on a mission to teach YOU how to cook just like mama did! She enjoys being in the kitchen bringing you everyday dishes that her mama, granny and maw maw made. No fancy ingredients, just good old country girl cooking. Tammy grew up in Polk County (NW) Georgia in an area called Collard Valley. She now lives in Saint Marys, GA. with her husband who is retired from the GA. School System and has girls in college at Georgia Southern in Savannah, Georgia.

NOW FOR THIS DELICIOUS RECIPE:
TAMMY’S CARROT RAISIN SALAD
1 lb. CARROTS
1/4 CUP RAISINS
1 8 OZ. CAN CRUSHED PINEAPPLE
2 TBSP. MAYONNAISE
1/4 TSP. SALT
Peel your carrots, rinse and grate with the small grater on a hand grater. Do not use the larger grater that you use for Cole slaw. This tiny grate makes all the difference in the world. Most food processors do not have a very small grate so a mandolin or hand grater is needed. Add the can of pineapple to the grated carrots. Add juice and all! Put in your raisins, mayonnaise, and salt. Mix well. The mayonnaise should be evenly distributed. Put in a serving dish and cover. Refrigerate up to 5 days. This is so delicious. Enjoy, Tammy

  1. I like this. My mother made it with mayonnaise and sugar, I think. I don't recall the pineapple, but I haven't had it for over 30 years, except at a buffet. She also made a salad with peas and cubed American cheese. That was also very good. Doesn't sound like it, but it was. Thanks for the wonderful memories, Tammy.

  2. Thanks so much for this recipe. I haven't made it in years (I think because it had too much mayo). This looks delicious. I remember when my son was in elementary school and he came home one day and told me that the school lunch lady fed him carrot peelings. I told him no, they were shredded carrots. I never did convince him. I asked her one day in passing about her carrot salad and she said she didn't peel the carrots, just washed and grated them peels and all. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Have a Blessed day.

  3. Looks wonderful! Commented on a video about a year ago, but don't know if you saw it. I was watching the video where you were cooking "Chris's fried chicken" for May's birthday. Kind of embarrassing but I did it anyway! Anyway, I am definitely gonna make this for Thanksgiving! "Bye…love ya!"
