Our family adores this refreshing veggie salad recipe. We have served it in the lettuce cups and in wraps. It makes a great side dish by itself as well with grilled meat during the summer.

This was very colorful and made for a great presentation. The dressing was good but just not for me. Too healthy maybe. Yes, I know that sounds crazy but the best way to describe it.
