Marinated Dill Carrots
pound baby carrots such as Romeo carrots
ounces button mushrooms
cup olive oil
cup white balsamic vinegar
teaspoons snipped fresh dill
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
cup roasted red peppers, drained and cut in strips
- Trim tops from carrots, if desired. In a large saucepan, cook the carrots 4 minutes in a small amount of boiling lightly salted water. Add the mushrooms. Cover and cook about 4 to 6 minutes more or until the carrots are tender. Drain; place in a large bowl and cool slightly.
- In a screw-top jar combine the olive oil, vinegar, snipped dill, salt and pepper. Cover and shake well. Pour over vegetables; toss gently to coat. Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours.
- Allow vegetables to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving. Serve with a slotted spoon. If desired, add red pepper strips. Garnish with fresh dill. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
