“The recipe is from a friend of my sister Carol (FOC) and passed along to me. My sister made a triple batch to take into work on "tax day" as part of "bring in a lot of good food so we can at least eat well on April 15th even if we work til 11 pm" celebration.... and said there was a scant 1/2 cup left! (It made the very large Tupperware covered bowl full!) I can't wait to try it as it sounds perfect for spring and summer! (Prep time does not include chill time.)”

Directions

  1. Mix together vegetables together and set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, mix oil, sugar, salt, pepper, water and vinegar and boil for 1 minute.
  3. Pour over vegetables and refrigerate over night.
  4. Stir before serving.
  5. NOTES: The original recipe calls for a cup of sugar but it can be adjusted to taste. Also, if substituting Splenda, you do not need to boil the marinade.
  6. NOTE 2: I made this to take to a luncheon/baby shower at work yesterday. I used 2/3 c Splenda instead of sugar and did not boil the dressing. Otherwise, I made as written. It was very easy to made, smelled wonderful, and tasted fantastic the next day. I saw several people going back for seconds! I have enough leftover for lunch today and am looking forward to it. I will definitely be making this recipe a lot this coming summer.
