Potluck Carrot Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by ellie_

This salad is a snap to make and is a great way to serve carrots which children and adults both enjoy. I like making it ahead of time and bringing it to potlucks or picnics. Recipe Source: Bon Appetit (April 1983)

My husband and I enjoyed this salad, but the kids did not. I believe it was just a bit to vinegary for them.:)
