I first tried this salad when I bought it in my supermarket's deli. I liked it so much that I played around with it until I managed to duplicate it.

You can use regular dressing or the low-fat or fat-free versions if you like. I like it best with the Sweet Onion (sometimes called Sweet Vidalia Onion) dressing. Just look for it in the salad dressing aisle.

How to Make Susan's Summer Squash Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Chop vegetables into pieces about 1/2 - 3/4 inch. Marinate in the dressing with the herbs. Allow to marinate at least 30 minutes before serving. Even better if marinated longer, about 4-8 hours or overnight.
  2. Vary the dressing for different flavors. Italian or Greek are also good. Even fat-free varieties can be used.
  3. Vary the sweetness with Stevia, honey, or agave nectar.
