This is a very good crunchy, refreshing salad. Lots of flavor and color. I didn't use the yellow squash. I only used one zucchini which was plenty. The red pepper I sliced into thin rings as the directions didn't state what to do with them. The snow peas would be better if they were julienned. I also added salt and pepper.
Bring your appetite as this makes a lot! Thank goodness I used the big bowl. DH loved this and had a couple of helpings. It was easy to prepare using the mandoline. There are no directions as to how to prepare or when to add the red pepper (I assumed it was not something to be poured over the vegetables). I sliced it the same thickness and added it before the dressing.
