Carrots in a sweet-and-sour tomato dressing make a tasty salad that’s easy to prepare. Perfect for a potluck because it’s made ahead and holds up well on a buffet table, it’s also good for bringing to a hot-weather picnic.
Blanch the carrots in boiling water to cover for about 30 seconds. Plunge into ice water to stop the cooking. Drain well. In a large bowl, combine the carrots with the onion and green pepper.
In a separate bowl or in a blender, combine the remaining ingredients to make the dressing. Mix until well blended. Pour over the carrot mixture. Toss to mix well. Cover and chill before serving.
