Sweet and Tangy Carrot Salad

Susan Bickta


My mother-in-law used to buy a salad much like this at a local farmer's market. After searching many places for a similar recipe, I finally found one in a spiral-bound fund raising cookbook published by a local church. After tweaking it some, I finally got the taste I was looking for!
