Sunshine Salad

In keeping with our cool summer salads, I thought I would share my Sunshine Salad recipe.  Most of my recipes come together by accident. …. “Let’s see, what do I have in the fridge ….”

Sunshine Salad is a revision of a jello salad my Aunt made us when I was a kid.  I don’t eat jello anymore, but the ingredients mixed together just in the right amount make a nice, slightly sweet, summer salad.

Sunshine Salad


1 – 20 oz can crush pineapple
1 to 1 ½ cups of finely chopped carrots
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup coconut
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds

Mix all the ingredients together — including the pineapple juice.

If you let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving, the flavors blend.

Quick, easy, and good!!

I have taken this dish to potlucks and gotten very good reviews.
