MY GRANDMA often made this light garden salad. I especially like to serve it in spring and summer, when we can use fresh vegetables from our backyard garden. The tangy Italian dressing is true to tradition. Crisp and refreshing, this salad complements any meal. -Rosalie Wright, San Jose, California

"Zucchini lovers will love this! Had everything on hand except for mushrooms. This makes a great side dish. Feel free to go heavy on the garden vegetables. There is plenty of dressing in this. As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine I enjoy recipes that use fresh ingredients."

"I made them and they were great. This is a wonderful light lunch or dinner. I'll certainly keep this in my rotation. I've never gotten a bad recipe from Taste of Home ever. Thanks Taste of Home."
