Spring into Seasonal Vegetables: Marinated Vegetable Salad Recipe

marinated vegetable salad

Why wait for summer to enjoy salad? This marinated vegetable salad recipe is a delight anytime of the year. Simple to make and full of flavor and crunch, you may even want to double the recipe to make sure there’s enough to go around.

The longer this salad marinates, the more flavorful it is. It’s my go-to summer Sunday night salad; I make enough to last for the week!
