This is a marinated fresh vegetable salad which is very pretty in a glass bowl. It's also a great side dish.

This is an excellent recipe! For the dressing use Newman's Oil & Vinegar (or Italian I believe). It's always better the 2nd day - I grew up eating it - Andrea is my mom and Harold was my Dad. Thanks for submitting it Mom! I just found it randomly on this site!:) Read More

This recipe was very "blah". Edible because it was so simple but very boring. Also directions say to add mushrooms but mushrooms are not listed in the ingredient list... Read More

I made this for Easter dinner at Bette Jo's 2011. Lacie said "Mmmm. That salad is good!" when she tried it so it must be OK. I liked it. Read More

I made it for a picnic. Everyone wanted the recipe. The only change was baby portabellos and Newman's own salad dressing. Read More

This is a very good recipe! I made this pretty much as in the recipe with a few minor substitutions. My whole family was happy to eat this. I prefer my olives sliced and I had a few cherry tomatoes to get rid of. Also made my standard vinaigrette dressing. Those were the big changes. Read More
