Chopped Veggie Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lorianne1

This is a recipe from Sasha's Wine Bar and Market in St. Louis. It is a good change from your basic salad. It makes a large amount and would be a good dish to take to a picnic or potluck. The only thing I did differently than the original recipe was that I used about half the onion called for. Enjoy!

I love this kind of recipe! It's amazing, as is, but sooo versatile. I make this often, changing the ingredients, using different nuts, and cheeses and vegetables, to suit my mood, and it's always great. You can also add a meat or protein to make this a main dish. I always make this a day ahead. I think it's better, after you allow the flavors to marry.
