Festive Holiday Vegetable Salad

READY IN: 3hrs
Recipe by Helping Hands

This is a fun, festive, colorful holiday, or special occasion, salad that is unique and has a beautiful presentation. Looks great on a buffet table or family dinner table; it is also perfect to take to a holiday potluck. It takes a little work to prepare, but is well worth it in the end (this recipe originally came from a magazine, but I can not recall which one).

i'm a raw-foodist, so i had to leave out a few items like the beans and cheese, but even without them, i thought this was delicious. i just kinda mixed everything together and ate it as a salad. very good.
