Directions:

  1. Place the rice, celery, carrot, almonds, and raisins in a large bowl, and toss to mix well.
  2. Place the dressing ingredients in a small bowl, and stir to mix. Add the dressing to the rice mixture, and toss to mix well, adding a little more mayonnaise if the mixture seems too dry.
