Quick & Easy Veggie Salad – Gooseberry Patch #3

I have a new favorite salad. It is the third recipe from the Real Farmwives in the kitchen with Gooseberry Patch project.

As you may remember I am cooking 10 recipes out of the GP Farmer’s Market Favorites cookbook.

I over course usually have no idea what I am going to have for dinner before I bust through the door from work, so anything that says quick and easy in the title calls my name.

Bonus that I actually had all the ingredients! Plus I tossed in some green peppers since I had them.

So I cut up a bunch of broccoli and a half of a head of cauliflower.

Then I cut up a whole, large tomato, a half a vidalia onion (recipe called for a red onion, but I had none:( So sad), and the half of green pepper. Added it to the bowl.

So, I decided I needed to add a little dairy to the mix.

A cup of mozzarella cheese made it to the bowl.  The recipe called for 3-4 tablespoons of Italian dressing. I probably used more like a 1/3 of cup of dressing. The hubby said it could have used a bit more.

Of course my darling princess scraped her plate clean. This will be a regular salad for the Beyer family this summer.
