Curried Carrot Slaw

I made this curried carrot slaw to go alongside some roasted chicken tonight - it was a huge hit! Abby chomped it all right down... and so did I! A full teaspoon of curry gave it more kick than I thought it would, but Abby still liked it. Take it down a bit if your kiddo is not ready for spiciness.

Curried Carrot Slaw
Prep time: 10 minutes

10 oz bag shredded carrots (they sell these right in the grocery store... or you could grate your own carrots)
1 apple, cut into matchstick-size shreds
1/2 cup raisins
3-4 Tbsp reduced-fat mayonnaise (Trader Joe's reduced fat mayo is great!)
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp curry powder (or less)
1/4 tsp cumin
salt & pepper

Mix the carrots, apple, and raisins together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the 3 Tbsp mayonnaise, lemon juice, curry, and cumin. Toss the dressing with the carrot mixture; add more mayonnaise and salt and pepper to taste.
