This is a delicious way to add veggies to your menu. We especially like it in the summer when the garden is overflowing with squash. It can be made in the morning, chilled and served with grilled meat in the evening. What could be simpler or healthier?

Delicious. Sometimes we substitute an Asian dressing for this one, and it always gets rave reviews.
