Marinated Fresh Vegetable Salad Recipe

Marinated Fresh Vegetable Salad Recipe

This crisp, colorful salad is full of goodness from the garden. The light marinade lets the fresh flavor of the vegetables come through. For variety, I sometimes substitute sliced zucchini for the cucumber. —Harriet Stichter, Milford, Indiana

"Too much oil and very plain. Not good for left overs due to the amount of oil. Just use italian dressing to marinate the veggies. That's much better."

"Way too much oil and very plane. I doubled the vinegar and added a italian seasoning packet. I went to eat it the next day and all the oil had created a whiting film on the veggies. Next time I'm just going to do what my mother-in-law does and just use light italian dressing."

"The dressing has a little kick with the ground mustard and is perfect for the crispy vegie's. You could any vegies you liked instead. SURPRISINGLY YUMMY!!!"
