A delicious summer salad. If you don't like raw vegetables, you can steam the broccoli, cauliflower and zucchini a little. In fact, I prefer it that way.

This is a wonderful summertime salad. No worring about mayonnaise and eggs sitting in the hot afternoon. I made this salad for the cookout cookathon, and it looked and tasted wonderful. The greens and yellows were so pretty together. I did steam the broccoli just for a minute and then dipped in ice water. It was still crispy, but not hard. Such a wonderful, easy, make-ahead recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Loved it! And I don't typically like raw vegies. I used balsamic vinegar. Really great with sandwiches instead of chips and also served with salmon. This will be come a staple in our diet.
