This salad offers the best that summer produce has to offer, and it looks so beautiful layered in a glass bowl. It's almost too pretty to dig into…almost! And it's perfect for potlucks. —Jodi Anderson, Overbrook, Kansas

    I halved the salad. I made as written. A wonderful way to get pack in the vegetables. I love the make ahead feature. A definite repeat.

    Delicious. So fresh with all of the vegetables. The only thing I changed was the dressing. I used lite mayo, a little bit of ranch dressing and 1 teaspoon of sugar.
