Carrot

Wilted DilledĀ Carrots

Author Notes

I frequently make a wilted cucumber salad with dill and red onion for family dinners and thought why not use the same technique with carrots? Since there are only two of us at home right now, I made a small batch using 1 pound of carrots, but this could certainly be doubled, tripled or even quadrupled for large gatherings. —inpatskitchen

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining. My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
