CARROT SALAD

(German) - (Pennsylvania Germans)







Aunt Sarah pared and cut 1-1/2 cups of uncooked carrots in thin
strips, not much larger than common match sticks, and cooked in salted
water until tender. When drained, pour over them a couple of
tablespoonfuls of vinegar. Allowed to stand until cold. When ready to
prepare the salad she drained off vinegar remaining. Lined a salad
bowl with lettuce leaves or parsley, placed inside this a border of
halved or sliced cold hard-boiled eggs; mixed the carrots lightly with
salad dressing, placed them in the centre of the bowl and served ice
cold. This is a particularly delicious, as well as an appetizing
looking, salad. I have never eaten this elsewhere than at Aunt Sarah's
home.
