Marinated Veggie Salad

Marinated Veggie Salad at Miz Helen's Country Cottage

Our Marinated Veggie Salad is a fantastic salad recipe that is limited only by your imagination. I love to keep some of this salad in the refrigerator during a busy week, Just take some from the jar, spread it on some greens, add a little feta and it is a delicious salad. The jar of marinated veggies will easily go into any picnic basket to give you a great side for the special picnic. This will also be a great bowl of salad for a covered dish, or a side dish for a family dinner. This is a great make ahead recipe that you will want to use over and over. We love this recipe and you can find it in my refrigerator most of the spring and summer for sure.
