Spectacular Sides: Healthy Carrot & Craisin Salad

Looking for a healthy alternative side dish to your meals, something beyond the mundane green beans, peas, corn or carrots?  I loved traditional Carrot & Raisin Salad when I was a kid, but it's not exactly "healthy."  Several years ago, I came across this healthier version, and loved it.  You can use either raisins or dried cranberries (craisins), depending upon your taste buds.  Raisins give it a sweet quality; dried cranberries a tartness.  Another great thing to note about this recipe is that it is super easy to make!

Healthy Carrot & Craisin Salad

4 med. carrots, shredded
1/4 cup dried cranberries or raisins
2 tsp sugar
juice of 1 lemon

In a medium bowl, thoroughly combine all ingredients.  Serve chilled.
