This is a great salad. I used cucumbers instead of zucchini. The dressing is yummy with all these veggies. I forgot to add the croutons. But anyway DH doesn't care for croutons. I omitted the almonds and sesame seeds. Thanks Diner :) Made for Holiday tag game
This salad has lots of nice veggies, but still it is easy to throw together. The dressing is simple but tasty. Made for ZWT 2011.
Nice side salad. I made it with as directed except that I forgot the croutons until I had eaten half of the salad, lol. Loved the dressing - nice and light. Thanks diner for a nice salad. Made for ZWT7 for the Emerald City Shakers.
