I threw this together, with my ingredients on hand.To take
to a cookout at my friends home.
Everyone loved it, so did I!
Out of 17 people, 8 women asked for the recipe. The other 8 were the husbands!.....I am sure you will like it also.
I love taking cold salads with NO MAYO to gatherings, and the colors look so pretty!
There was no left overs.
They also enjoyed my recipe on JAP
"Carrot Banana Nut Bars"

How to Make FRESH SALAD,GREAT FOR A B-B-Q w/friends(no mayo)

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash and slice the tomatoes,
    then cut in 3rds or halves
    Put in a bowl.
    Combine the oil, vinegar, parsley, dill and chopped up green onions. Gently toss with the tomatoes.
    Cover, and put in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.
    To meld the flavors.
  2. Clean and score the cucumbers.
    Set aside.
  3. Shred the lettuce, as you would cabbage.
    One small head or 1/2 a large head.
    I use a plastic knife.. then your lettuce will not turn brown at the cut edges.
    Set aside.
  4. Clean and seed 6 small ,
    sweet mini peppers and slice thin.
    Put the lettuce, cucumbers and sweet min peppers,
    in a large bowl.
    ***When ready to serve,
    Add the cold tomatoes mixture, to the above mix.
    Toss lightly,gently until well blended.
    Salt and pepper , if desired.
    Now enjoy!
