Continuing with my quest to add more vegetable servings to my day, I ran across this recipe that had been scribbled on a scrap of a paper towel. I suspect I found this in a magazine while sitting in a waiting room somewhere waiting, patiently, or maybe not too patiently, for an appointment of some kind or another.
There is a good bit of grating involved but other than that, it goes together fairly quickly. The result is not only colorful but quite refreshing and delicious.
|The green onions were camera-shy|
2 large or 3 medium yellow squash
2 large or 3 medium zucchini
3 medium carrots
1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
2 green onions, finely chopped
Peel and grate the squash and zucchini. Squeeze out excess water using paper towels or a clean cloth and place in a medium bowl. Peel and grate carrots and add to squash mixture. Stir in the diced red bell pepper and green onions.
1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup Stevia (it called for sugar)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Whisk all ingredients together until well blended. Pour over vegetable mixture.
Cover and chill at least one hour before serving.
