Italian Vegetable Salad

Even our two small children eat their vegetables when I serve this colorful nutritious combination. To make it a main dish, I'll stir pepperoni slices and cooked cooled pasta into the crunchy, creamy blend. -Debbie Laubach, La Prairie, Minnesota

    This is very good. I've taken it to our family reunion a couple of times. I omit the onion since it can get strong fairly soon.
