    I used to eat this ALL the time at Luby’s, but I don’t care for raisins so I picked them out. Do you think cranberries, that are packaged like raisin, would be an ok substitute for the raisins?

    I made this last Thanksgiving and will make it again. It’s very delicious. I add a little extra mayo because I like it creamier. Thanks for the post.

    I have been looking for a carrot raisin pineapple salad like Hometown Buffet makes but can’t seem to find one.I don’t believe it is mayonnaise based.
