This chilled salad is wonderful on a hot day. Make it ahead of time to let the dressing flavors meld, but be sure not to add the peanuts until just before serving so they retain their crunch.

1/2 cup prepared French onion dip

2 tablespoons toasted sesame seed oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon sugar

3/4 cup finely chopped carrot
3/4 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
