Marinated Veggie Salad

This was originally posted back in March, but I thought it would be a good one to link to for Gooseberry Patch's Recipe Roundup -- which is Cookout Favorites this week. Enjoy!
I tried a new salad recipe this weekend, and thought I would pass it along. We always enjoy marinated salads, and this one was no exception. I had come across the recipe in an older Country Woman magazine, and thought it looked simple and easy. I made this on Saturday night to take to our church potluck on Sunday. Here's the link: Marinated Veggie Salad.
I used homemade Italian dressing, but any Italian dressing you like would work just fine. The only change I made was to omit the chopped red onion. We just don't care for raw onion in recipes, although we use cooked onions all the time. Another time, I might add some dry minced onion or some additional onion powder to the salad dressing before mixing the salad.
This salad went over very well at the potluck. Delicious and very easy!

I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
