Allowing the salad to sit for at least 30 minutes before serving means the raw vegetables get a chance to soak up the tangy-sweet dressing in this healthy side dish recipe. Serve with grilled chicken, steak, mushrooms or tofu.

This was delicious, very fresh. I followed the recipe but added some different squash I found at the farmer's market. I think you could add almost any fresh summer vegetable that you can slice. Great with fish.

fresh, crunchy, not to sour, just enough sweet and salty
Pros: ok with additional veg - whatever is in your garden. I added fresh peas
Cons: disappears too quickly ;)
