Found this years ago in a church cookbook - and absolutely couldn't comprehend how sweetened condensed milk and vinegar could possibly be good BUT it is fantastic! I've made this numerous times for reunions, potlucks and the bowl is always emptied.

16 oz
tri-color rotini
4 medium
carrots, shredded (i use a bag of ready shredded carrots)
1 large
green bell pepper, chopped
1 large
red or orange bell pepper, chopped
1 medium
red onion, diced
2 c
1 can(s)
(14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
3/4 c
apple cider vinegar
1/2 c
1 tsp
1/2 tsp


1Cook rotini according to package directions to al dente stage; drain and rinse in cold water. In a large serving bowl, combine the rotini, carrots, peppers and onion. In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise, milk, sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper until smooth. Pour over rotini mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Yield: 14 servings.

This is a versatile salad as you can add whatever veggies your family likes - I've added english peas, thawed and drained and I've also added chopped cooked chicken or some cubed cheddar cheese. All these additions make a yummy change. But the dressing is awesome. It's not overpoweringly sweet as it might appear.
