    Charismatic marinated! The veggies are cooked to perfection as well as being a delightful combination. Maid as written but next time will plan on having lettuce on hand just to bring out the color and give a little pop in the eye department. This would be a great pot luck dish and plan on using it for an upcoming family get-together. Thanks for the post.

    I served this at a potluck event at work, and not only was it a big hit, I made it the night before! I served it on a bed of mesclun (spring mix salad). There were no leftovers, BTW! Thanks, Lavender Lynn! Made for ZWT5, Kitchen Witches!

    This was really good, and I think I would really enjoy it placed on a bed of salad greens. I quartered my mushrooms, because they were pretty big. Made for PRMR tag!

    This was fabulous, and so easy to make! Better than what you can get at the deli counter. I did let it marinate for 24 hours. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag Game.

    What a keeper !! Made for Australia/NZ Swap # 21. DD #2, her wonderful DH, and the 14 yo twin DGKs came for dinner after a soccer game. I was a tad leary of this being appealing to them -- but I made the entire recipe as listed, AND THEY LOVED IT !! Took the leftovers and copy of the recipe home ! It had marinated for about 24 hours, and the flavors were perfectly melded. Thanks for posting this great salad, Lynn !
