Summer Salad

(inspired by a salad I came across on

  • 2 tomatoes, seeded and roughly chopped into large pieces
  • 1 orange bell pepper, seeded, ribbed and chopped
  • 1 yellow squash, halved, seeded, and sliced
  • 1 zucchini, halved and sliced
  • 3-4 green onions, chopped
  • 2 handfuls precut carrots
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing
  • S&P to taste

Mix all vegetables together with dressing. Chill for one hour before serving.

We had this for supper tonight. Phil has been wanting me to make a salad that one of his bosses served at her 4th of July party last year. One problem: I didn’t like it all that much. So, I started searching and came across a recipe I kinda thought would be a good substitute. A few change, and voila! We have success 🙂 Next time, I think I’ll take out the squash/zucchini and substitute cucumber in its place. The green onions are great in it. They add some onion flavor, but are not sooooo overpowering! I also think it would be good with italian dressing and some feta mixed in, so we might try that next time…
