Parsnip Carrot Salad
"Because my husband's garden produced an overabundance of parsnips, I experimented and came up with this combination that can be served as an appetizer, salad or side dish," writes Marge Campbell of Waymart, Pennsylvania. "We like it with duck or chicken."
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
- 3 cups sliced peeled parsnips
- 3/4 cup sliced peeled carrots
- 3 tablespoons orange juice
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
