Vegetable Toss

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Barb G.

This is a Salad, easy to double for a crowd. The recipe comes from the Salinas Valley, just 8 miles from Monterey bay. This valley grows 80% of the of the nations lettuce, 60% of the broccoli, 50% of the cauliflower and mushrooms, 90% of the artichokes & 25% of the celery, that is why it is called the Salad Bowl of the World. This takes 2 hours refrigration time.

Top Review by Merlot

You can never have too many salads on a buffet table and this salad not only makes a beautiful presentation, but is a nice change-of-pace version of a typical layered salad. Everyone loved the dressing. . . a very nice touch. A plus is that it can be made ahead of time. Thanks, Barb Gertz, for sharing this.
