Marinated Veggie Salad

"This is my favorite potluck salad. I get compliments every time I make it," says Lynn Grate, South Bend, Indiana. It's also an ideal make-ahead dish since it needs to marinate overnight.

    So easy, fresh and tasty. I alsonadded.broccoli, and like another reviewer suggests, I will try other veggies and cheese sometime as a variation. Great for my large family gatherings!

    So easy and delicious! I even added some extras: small bunch of broccoli, 1 thickly shredded carrot (the side of the shredder you never use), freshly shredded parmesan cheese, and I replaced a small handful of black olives with Greek kalamata olives.

    This salad went over very, very well at a potluck yesterday. Only a small amount was left, and one lady asked to take it home!The salad was so easy to make. I left out the onion, because we don't really enjoy raw onion in recipes, and I used homemade lowfat Italian dressing. Really delicious and easy. I will be making this again!
