Here we are in the middle of another week, how's it going for you so far? This week is not as hot as last, we had record breaking temperatures and several days in a row of well over 105 heat index, add to that the 50% and higher humidity... whew, it's like being in an oven with a wet blanket on you, yuck.
A few weeks ago we were out at the farm, love going out there, and my sister-in-law made a marinated carrot salad. It was divine, I tell you I could have eaten the entire half gallon but didn't.
Isn't this lovely, I can see myself fixing this for holidays or even to enjoy on hot summer days. I mean, it's cool, refreshing, healthy and raw. What's not to love? Plus the longer it sits, the better it gets! Now there's a tag line for ya.
3 cups peeled and sliced carrots
1/4 cup diced bell pepper
1 large onion thinly sliced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup vinegar, white
Heat the vinegar and sugar in a sauce pan until the sugar dissolves. Combine the remaining ingredients and pour into a air tight container. Chill in the fridge for several hours or over night, serve and enjoy!
