Marinated Carrots


Do you ever get tired of the same old salads? This one is a little more unusual but just as delicious as the more common potato salad and others like it.
 
I was thinking about the time in the past when I was employed at a restaurant and about the food that the diners always raved about and this was one of the recipes they couldn't seem to get enough of. I never would have imagined that it could be good and remember being very surprised when I tasted it to find that I agreed with them!!
 
Very simple and a lot less time consuming than potato salad, woohoo! And I like that it's a little more out of the ordinary. :)
 
3 lbs. baby carrots
1 medium sized green pepper,
sliced very thin
1 medium sized onion,
sliced very thin
 
1 sm. can tomato soup
1 cup sugar
½ cup olive oil
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
½ - 1 teaspoon dry mustard
 
Steam carrots till they are crisp/tender. Place immediately into cold water to stop the cooking process. Drain.
 
Slice pepper and onion.
 
Mix dressing ingredients and pour over vegetables. Mix and refrigerate overnight to let the flavors blend.
 
Enjoy!
 
♥ Blessings!♥
