I like the assortment of veggies in this but for me the dressing was too sweet.I might try again with half the amount of sweetener.
We really liked this recipe. It's nice that it uses things I usually have on hand. Thanks for posting!
From the delicious and healthy ingredients to the ease of preparation, I rate this recipe "outstanding"! I love being able to stir up a vegetable salad and keep it in the refrigerator for a quick, nutritous lunch or snack. This one hold well and actually improves for the next day. I added a small can of water chestnuts, chopped and substituted rice wine vinegar for the balsamic vinegar. When I make this next time, I might add some cilantro as well and/or parsley.
