Potluck Vegetable Salad Recipe

A simple combination of vegetables, sugar and cider vinegar, this colorful salad recipe is the perfect addition to potluck or picnics.  The recipe was given to me by a close family friend about 10 years ago and it’s been a favorite ever since.  It’s also healthy … baring the sugar, I suppose … but an easy way to get a big dose of vegetables.

I love cider vinegar. I use it for pickles, relishes, sweet and sour green beans, salad dressings, marinades, and anything else I can think of.

Cider vinegar is a traditional folk remedy to cure all sorts of ailments, including warts, and has been used in a variety of ways throughout history. I’ve never really used it for medicinal purposes, but I certainly eat plenty of it.

Hippocrates mixed it with honey as a cure-all for coughs and colds1)http://www.apple-cider-vinegar-benefits.com/vinegar-history.html, something that became popular again in the 1970s after Dr. D.C. Jarvis published Folk Medicine: A Vermont Doctor’s Guide to Good Health, claiming that honey enhanced the healing power of the vinegar.2)http://altmedicine.about.com/od/applecidervinegardiet/a/applecidervineg_2.htm 

I don’t recommend relying on cider vinegar for any type of health issues, but I absolutely recommend using it in this salad.
