What Did You Put in This Salad?

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by breezermom

This has something in it that you normally don't put into a salad, but it works! This is great for summer potlucks or barbecues...no mayo. Best if made a day ahead, but you can chill for a couple of hours and still enjoy it! Prep time does not include chilling time! Original recipe from Taste of Home.

A nice side for our family barbecue. Making 24 hours ahead allows the flavors to mellow. Made almost as written the only change I made was not measuring the yellow squash or zucchini just used one whole one of each which was more like a cup of each. Thanks so much for the post.
