Favorite summer recipes from The Carousel

A lot of us in Salisbury miss the old Carousel Restaurant and the great food and camaraderie associated with it.
The following are recipes from owner Angie Allen. Angie’s Cold Shrimp Salad and Sweet and Sour Vegetable Bean Salad were definitely customer favorites. Served together, they make a perfect summer lunch.
