Marinated Fresh Vegetable Salad Recipe

Marinated Fresh Vegetable Salad Recipe

This crisp, colorful salad is full of goodness from the garden. The light marinade lets the fresh flavor of the vegetables come through. For variety, I sometimes substitute sliced zucchini for the cucumber. —Harriet Stichter, Milford, Indiana
