Veggie Spiral Salad

 Veggie Spiral Salad
My husband and son detested pasta salad before I came up with this one. But there were no leftovers the very first time I served this—now it's a summertime family favorite! Filled with fresh, crunchy radishes and celery, juicy tomatoes and cucumbers, this nutritious recipe is one to try with your gang. —Melody Loyd, Parowan, Utah
