Crunchy Marinated Vegetable Salad

Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2022

I’m a salad lover though I didn’t grow up eating a lot of salad. I grew up in the stone age when fresh vegetables could only be obtained by family gardens or a few months in the summer. The rest of the year you ate canned vegetables because even frozen weren’t to be had back in those days. Crunchy Marinated Vegetable Salad is one of those delicious salads I can’t get enough of–but especially in the cold, winter months.

Thankfully, the food supply has changed a lot over the last five decades and now you can purchase most fruits and vegetables throughout the year. My mom used to make a salad like this a lot for us when we would visit when our kids were little. I’ve added a lot more veggies than she used to use. I like the crunchiness, assorted flavors and healthiness of this amazing salad.

Crunchy Marinated Vegetable Salad is a terrific salad to make up for company. While I used Hendrickson’s Sweet Vinegar and Olive Oil dressing (I get it at Brookshire’s here in Texas), any good Italian dressing will do. This dressing is sweeter than most Italian dressings so it’s different in that respect, but if you prefer a salad that’s not sweet, use any oil and vinegar based dressing. This is also a fantastic way to get your kids to eat their veggies. 🙂 No, I didn’t go there!
