Simple 1-2-3 Marinated Vegetable Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Two Socks

This is a simple and delicious change from cucumbers in vinegar and makes a great vegetarian snack or side dish. It's also great in that it requires no cooking at all! I make this all Summer long and have some whenever I get the 'munchies'. A friend used to serve this to me when I lived in Arkansas and I've never forgotten how to make it.

Delicious!! This salad was perfect for using up the abundance of tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, and onions that my garden was producing. The dressing was seasoned perfectly ( I did add 1/2 tsp. black pepper) and added a wonderful flavor to this light and refreshing salad. I will be making this salad often this summer. My family loved it! Thank you for sharing this is definitely a keeper.
