I am so excited to be linking up with Mel over at The Larson Lingo today for her annual Summer Salad Swap. Last year I got a lot great ideas for yummy salads and so am I looking forward to getting some new ones this year.
I am sharing with you a Carrot Salad that I grew up with and is my Mom's recipe. I actually think it originated with my grandmother so it's been passed down. To be honest, the ingrediants make it sound a little iffy but it is DELICIOUS!
12-16 Carrots. Clean and coin or shred and cook until tender. Drain.
Chop finely 1 green pepper and 1 large onion.
1 can tomato soup
1 cup white sugar
1/3 cup Crisco oil
2/3 cup vinegar
1 tsp dried mustard
Salt & Pepper
Mix vegetables in sauce and refrigerate 1-2 hours before serving. I also like to add a few raisins!
