“I invented this recipe while watching a movie set on the Greek islands. I like the combination of warm grilled steak and sauteed mushrooms with cold salad ingredients.” —Chris Wells, Lake Villa, Illinois
This is a perfect salad for potlucks and other occasions year-round. In winter, the ingredients are available when many other vegetables aren’t in season…and in summer, it’s a worry-free picnic food since it doesn’t have a mayonnaise-based dressing.
One of my all-time favorite side dishes, this marinated medley is well-received whenever I serve it - which is often. It's wonderful with turkey, but also pleasant with just about any main dish you can think of.

Brighten up your winter meals with this crisp and colorful salad. Tomatoes, broccoli, mushrooms and red onions mingle with crunchy water chestnuts, all draped in a zesty bottled dressing. Dorothy Myrick of Kent, Washington shared this recipe.
Packed with mushrooms and loads of crunchy colorful ingredients, this salad is perfect at picnics and parties. It keeps so well in the refrigerator you can easily make it ahead of time.

It takes only minutes to put together this salad's tangy dressing. Lynn Larkin's vinaigrette of basil, oregano and sage complements the crisp spinach and fresh mushrooms she serves at her Sterling Heights, Michigan home.
