Squash Salad With Basil Vinaigrette

Squash Salad With Basil Vinaigrette at Miz Helen's Country Cottage
It is always fun this time of the year to go out to the garden and come in to the kitchen and create a new recipe. Today I had a few squash, tomatoes and peppers. I always have herbs on hand so we can create some very tasty vinaigrette. When I finally got it into the salad bowl it was just delicious and a salad that we will just love. I took it to a ladies covered dish luncheon and all the ladies loved the salad, so to all you ladies that wanted the recipe it is here today!

  2. That's a great salad. Last year I had lots of the ingredients in my garden. This year I didn't make it home in time to plant. - Margy
