  1. Put the carrots in a medium pot. Cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium high. Cook for 5 to 8 minutes, or until tender-crisp, stirring occasionally. Stir in the bell pepper and onion. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Drain the vegetables well in a colander.
  2. In the same pot, stir together the remaining ingredients. Cook over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes, or until heated through and well combined, stirring constantly. Stir in the vegetables, tossing to coat. Serve warm. (Or, to serve as a cold salad, cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.)
