Marinated Vegetable Salad

Standard

This is a recipe passed down from my late Grandmother Brady.  It is easy and delicious.  These vegetables always make me think of days of my childhood visiting my grandparents in North Carolina. They were originally made with peas but my mom started making it for me using corn because I don’t like peas.

Marinated Vegetables

1 can French cut green beans
1 can green peas or 1 can corn
1 small jar pimientos
1 cup chopped celery (I rarely buy celery so I never add it)
1 chopped onion (I normally use onion but didn’t have one on hand for this batch)
1 cup sugar (I use 1/2 cup or less)
1 cup vinegar
1/2 cup salad oil
1 tbsp salt (sometimes I use celery salt)
1 tsp pepper


Drain vegetables. Mix remaining ingredients and pour mixture over vegetables. Chill thoroughly. Will keep for several days.
