Interesting vegetable salads have always intrigued me and this carrot salad is one of my favorites. It is colorful, easy to make, delicious, uses ingredients you probably have on hand, and is always popular. You can make it ahead; in fact, it is better made ahead and allowed to chill in the refrigerator over night or more, up to 4 weeks for sure). Serves 6.
2 lbs. carrots, peeled and sliced
1 medium green pepper, diced
2 medium onions, chopped
1 10 oz can tomato soup

2/3 cup wine vinegar
¼ cup vegetable oil

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1. Cook carrots in boiling salted water until barely tender; cool and drain.

This is delicious served with pork, chicken, or turkey.
