Based on the ingredients, I'm not sure I would have ever tried this dish without first having it at a buffet. I don't use the pimentos, salt. I actually prefer this served at room temperature. Even if you're not a carrot lover, give this one a try. Recipe from acquaintance Janet. Unsure yields.
- 2 lbs fresh carrots
- 1⁄2 red onion, thin sliced
- 1⁄2 green pepper, sliced very thin in 1 strips
- 1 (4 ounce) jar pimentos, chopped (optional)
- 1 cup fresh parsley, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup butter or 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup vinegar
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed tomato soup, undiluted
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt (optional)
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
