Fresh Veggie Salad

Fresh Veggie Salad
A healthy, simple to make summer veggie salad is a great addition to any meal. You can use any fresh veggies for this salad. I only used a few items for this salad but it still tasted delicious!
Fresh Ingredients:
1 bunch asparagus tips, sliced
2-3 cucumbers, sliced
6-8 tomatoes, I used Roma
1 c sugar snap peas
1/2 shallot or onion
1/4 c fresh, chopped basil
2 T freshly chopped dill
1/2 c extra virgin olive oil
1/4 red wine vinegar
1-2 tsp honey, optional
salt and pepper to taste
(or use your favorite Italian dressing)
  1. Cut all ingredients into bite size pieces until you have approximately 5-6 cups of veggies. 
  2. Whisk olive oil and vinegar together. I added a little honey to sweeten it up a bit. 
  3. If you have a favorite Italian dressing, pour that over the veggies and skip the olive oil and vinegar.
  4. Pour dressing over veggies and stir gently until the veggies are coated. 
  5. I usually let my salad sit for about 30 minutes. It's great if you let the veggies soak up the dressing before serving.  
Enjoy a blessed day!
Love and peace,
