Festive Holiday Vegetable Salad

Total Time
Prep 3 hrs
Cook 0 mins

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).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place beans and each veggie in separate sealable plastic bags.
  2. Mix olive oil and lemon juice in jar, with lid.
  3. Shake to mix.
  4. Add honey, salt, and pepper to jar, and shake to mix.
  5. Pour 2 tbs of salad dressing into each bag.
  6. Seal bags and place in fridge for 2-4 hours.
  7. On a large serving platter, line up separate individual veggie groups vertically, placing the feta cheese and beans separately, in the same vertical fashion, in the middle of the platter.
  8. Sprinkle parsley on all.
  9. The result will be a beautifully presented, colorful vegetable platter.

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.

The presentation was beautiful and receivel lots of compliments. I took two outer leaves of radicchio and used them as bowls to hold the feta cheese and cannellini beans, setting one at each end of the platter. I felt the dressing was a little bland and wanted a zippy flavor so I added some garlic and Italian seasonings.
