St. Elizabeth's Carrot Salad

This recipe is from St. Johns Church cookbook. Billie Lillywhite shared this recipe, which is a keeper!


2 lbs carrots, peeled and sliced
1 green pepper, sliced thin
1 medium onion, sliced thin
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 cup salad oil ( used a little less then 1/4 cup)
1 cup sugar ( used 1/2 cup)
3/4 cup vinegar ( used 1/2 cup)
1 can Campbell's tomato soup


Boil carrots in salted water for about 10 minutes. 

Drain, transfer to a mixing bowl and add onion and pepper

In a saucepan, mix mustard, sugar, oil, vinegar and tomato soup. Heat and stir to dissolve sugar.

Pour over carrots.

Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight.

  1. This is a really different kind of salad. Would never think of using carrots like this. Also using tomato soup in the ingredients. I will put this one on my to try list. Thanks for sharing Linda

    1. I found the recipe in one of the cookbooks I'm giving away. You know how I like trying different things. Next time I need to slice the carrots thinner.

      It was really good!

  2. What a neat side dish! YUM!

    I would love for you to share this with my Facebook Group for recipes, crafts, tips, and tricks:

  3. This recipe reminds me a lot of the Marinated Carrots my Mom always made for get togethers. She got the recipe from her former boss' daughter. Robin and I make them a lot during the summer....the good thing about recipes like this is the longer they sit, the better they taste. I cut the carrots into sticks-a little thinner than you use for dipping. So good.

    1. I should of cut the carrots smaller. It was good and will make it again

  4. I never think to use carrots in a salad like this. We have a bunch planted, so new servings suggestions are welcomed!
