I really liked the crunchy combination of veggies, and the refreshing light dressing. A simple but tasty salad.

I had everything to make it except a yellow bell, and the zucchini. So my review is without those two items. Since it was only the two of us, it would've made way too much anyway. The salad was so pretty and colorful and tasted fresh and light, the dressing was very subtle letting you savor all the individual flavors of each crispy ingredient. I will certainly try this again when I have all the pepper and zucchini, but it was still wonderful without them.
