I made this for a side at a BBQ this past weekend, and it was a big hit - even among non-veggie lovers. It was very refreshing and light. I was originally planning to maybe steam the squash, but sliced it thin, left it raw, and it was perfect. Very colorful and pretty dish too.
I had a potluck dinner to go to and had to work. that morning I made this salad and let it sit in the fridge until the dinner. talk about easy. I had never made it but it went together like a snap!! I came home with no salad everyone wanted the recipe.
A big hit at potlucks!!
A new family favorite! Easy to prepare, and tastes great. I'll be using the dressing on other salads as well.
Always get compliments when I make this salad!
