Uncle Louie’s Marinated Veggie Salad

veggie salad

I figured it was time to dust off the ol’ blog.  This easy, delicious salad comes from my late great uncle and makes a great addition to a summer BBQ.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup veggie oil
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (16 oz) can French-style green beans, drained
  • 1 (16 oz) can small-sized sweet English peas, drained
  • 1 (14 oz) can shoepeg corn, drained
  • 1 (2 oz) jar diced pimento, drained
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 bunch green onion, chopped


Mix sugar, vinegar, veggie oil, pepper and salt in sauce pan; bring to a boil. Cool. Toss dressing with remaining ingredients.  Chill.  Best if made the day before to let veggies marinade longer.
