Garden Vegetable Salad Recipe

Garden Vegetable Salad Recipe

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
