In an effort to help with the morning rush, I like to have lunch sides packed in individual containers and ready to go.  My kids love fruit, but sending an apple to school 3 times a week can get boring fast.  We came up with apple raisin salad, it is gluten free, Paleo, and yummy.  A batch can be made on Sunday night and used throughout the week.


Apple Raisin Salad

Serves 8


4 Medium Apples (any kind will do)

1/2 cup Raisins

1/4 cup Finely Shredded Carrot

1 cup Orange Juice

1 cup Pineapple Juice



  1. Place raisins in a heat proof bowl
  2. Heat orange juice to a simmer
  3. Pour orange juice over raisins and cover with a plate.  Let steep while you prep the apples.
  4. Spiral cut or julienne cut the apples. *We use a tool to spiral cut fruits and vegetables
  5. Place apple cuts into a large mixing bowl
  6. Pour pineapple juice on apples and stir well *This will keep the apples from browning
  7. Drain the raisins and add to the apple bowl
  8. Add the finely shredded carrots to the apple bowl
  9. Mix well and drain pineapple juice
  10. Scoop into 1/2 cup mason jars, tighten the lid, and refrigerate

      Yes, that is how I pack their lunches. Even my 7 year old son brings his jars home without breaking them. I like to make the sides ahead of time. We made that on Sunday and the apples were still crisp on Thursday when the last jar went to school.
