Summer Vegetable Salad

Rated as 4.59 out of 5 Stars

"THIS SALAD is not only delicious, it helped our family weather the Depression. I still remember lining up with Papa to receive dried beans and a 10-pound sack of yellow cornmeal. We used the cornmeal to make polenta. Mother made this salad with vegetables from the garden, and it really tasted good with the polenta. -Rudy Mancini, Calistoga, California"

I had all the vegetables for this cut but I waited until I was making the dressing when I found out I was out of red wine vinegar. No problem--I used balsamic. I also used EVOO instead of vegeta...

This was very good and a great way to use the fresh vegetables from the garden. I would suggest to others who make this either use more vegetables or make less dressing because at the bottom of ...

Never had such raves for a salad. I threw in whatever vegetables I had on hand: carrots, broccoli florets and avocado slices. I marinated veggies for over an hour and served on top of Bibb le...

I made this because I was looking for a heart healthy salad. I did use balsamic vinegar, and olive oil. In the reviews it so many of them talked about to much dressing. I decided to add a lb. bo...

I used just the dressing part of the recipe with the fresh basil. It is so good on any salad I put it on.

After reading the reviews I chose to make this salad with less dressing and add broccoli. Part of that was a mistake. After refrigerating the salad for 4 hours it was tasty yet a little dry and ...
