My mom has made this salad for the holidays for years it is a favorite from spring to winter. It is quite heavenly. I have made changes to it though. To be made the night before and chilled.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a colorful and tasty salad with a great assortment of fresh veggies. Since it's lightly dressed, you really taste the flavors of the veggies when they marry together overnight. It's a delicious and bright salad. It's a healthy holiday side dish but should be enjoyed year round.

Note: We added a few extra slices of tomato and avocado along with the Feta cheese when serving as decoration. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
