Garden Salad

Rose Mary Mogan


Here is a quick & easy garden salad, light, and tasty as an accompaniment to any meal. The bright colors of the yellow squash and the red peppers, and red onions, becons for your taste buds. It is quite easy to make. Instead of buying 6 of the small bags of salad, why not visit one of the club stores and buy a large bag, it is usually a lot cheeper, & the salad will be great for those choosing to eat light. You can also add any of your own favorites like grape tomatoes, chopped green onions, shredded carrots, radishes, sliced mushrooms what ever you like. Be creative.
