We are now told how much a pickled side dish aids in digestion. Isn't it nice to find out we did something right even though we didn't know why ??
My daughter recently shared this recipe with me that she was given by a co-worker. I'm sure it is one of those recipes that takes on many variations to suit the cook, but here is this easy summer salad as it came passed on to me.
- 1 1/2 cups vinegar
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 tsp mustard seed
- 1 tsp celery seed
- 1/2 tsp salt
- one whole bunch of celery
- 2 red peppers
- 1/2 onion
Boil marinating ingredients for a couple of minutes, cool slightly and then pour over the vegetables in large bowl or covered dish to store.
Let marinate in fridge for a day, then remove vegetables with slotted spoon, as needed, to serve.
This salad will keep for a long time.
