- Mix all vegetables (or any other combination you choose).
- Add salad dressing and marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
My husband loves a salad with dinner and I always make something up with lettuce and the usual vegetables. I decided to try this for a change. We really enjoyed it. I also took some along when my family got together for a picnic and it went over well. I had to make copies of the recipe for a couple of members of my family (they don't have a computer). This makes a lot of salad and my husband also took a small container for lunch several days. Will definitely make this again.....
Many thanks to Mysterygirl for sharing this great recipe. This has become one of my favorite salad recipes. I have taken it to several potlucks and always get lots of compliments on it. Since I am on Weight Watchers, I lightened it up even more by using the Fat-Free Zesty Italian Dressing.
This is the same recipe my mom's been making since the dawn of time! I love this recipe, even as a kid it was a favourite of mine. My mom (and so I do it too) adds a jar of marinated artichoke hearts to it every so often, as well as carrots and sometimes even brussels sprouts! I like that it can be made no matter what vegetables you have on hand, I haven't tried one that I didn't like yet.
