    CookETC's Note:

    I created this to complement Spicy BBQ Rubbed Pork Chops (the rub recipe was from Rachel Ray). It pairs nicely with any barbequed meat dish. It's kind of a spin on "Copper Pennies" of my favorite cold summer salads...but it's less sweet and a bit more versatile. Serve it as a salsa to top meats or as a cold summer salad...It's even good when heated and served as a side dish.

    Units: US | Metric




    1. 1
      Cook carrots till tender in microwave (about 4-6 minutes).
    2. 2
      Chop red onion and green bell pepper.
    3. 3
      FOR SALSA: Cut carrots into bite-sized pieces (cutting them in half usually does the trick unless you have the fatter baby carrots).
    4. 4
      FOR SALAD OR SIDE DISH: Leave carrots whole.
    5. 5
      Combine marinade ingredients in a medium bowl (use one that has a good fitting lid).
    6. 6
      Toss in the veggies, except the grape tomatoes.
    7. 7
      Now, smash each grape tomato over the bowl (I just give them a quick squeeze or two in the middle using my fingers as I drop them in the bowl).
    8. 8
      FOR SALSA OR SALAD: Cover and refrigerate at least an hour (overnight is even better).
    9. 9
      FOR SIDE DISH: heat in the microwave for about 2-3 minutes.

      I made this as a salad/side dish and found this awesome. I love everything about it, especially the grape tomatoes, which I found to be the best kind of tomatoes for this recipe.
