Garden Tossed Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
My Italian grandma grew all of her produce in her backyard garden, so many of her recipes made good use of her bountiful fresh vegetables. This salad is refreshing with any main course and one of our favorites because of the flavors of my Italian heritage. -Rosalie Rizzolo-Wright, San Jose, California
