Great Aunt Anna's Marinated Carrots

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by luvinlif2k

A replica of the salad I fell in love with working at the Shady Maple IGA Deli. I used apple cider vinegar and though the smell during the cooking phase was questionable the final product was perfect.

I really enjoyed this salad. I used regular white vinegar and saw your note about cider vinegar later. I will try it with cider vinegar next time. I used red pepper instead of green. I will make this one again. ZWT3
