Mom's Marinated Vegetables


I got this recipe from my mother and I've never seen anything like it elsewhere. It's great for summer since it's cool and crisp. I like to take it to potlucks since it marinates overnight.

  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and sliced

  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced

  • 1 onion, sliced

  • 1 cucumber, peeled and sliced

  • 3 stalks celery, sliced

  • 1 cup cauliflower florets, broken into bite size pieces

  • 1 cup broccoli florets, broken into bite size pieces

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup distilled white vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed tomato soup


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly-salted water to a boil. Add the sliced carrots, and cook until just tender, about 3 minutes. Drain in a colander, then immediately immerse in ice water for several minutes until cold to stop the cooking process. Once the carrots are cold, drain well, and place into a large glass or plastic bowl.

  2. Place the green pepper, onion, cucumber, celery, cauliflower, and broccoli into the bowl along with the carrot; set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, mustard, and salt until the sugar begins to dissolve. Whisk in the vegetable oil and condensed tomato soup until smooth. Pour the marinade over the vegetables, and stir until evenly blended. Cover, and marinate overnight in the refrigerator.
