I want to share a simple recipe for a summer veggie salad I made last week that is a perfect side dish for whatever you’re grilling this Memorial Day – and it requires minimal effort.
Ok, well the chopping requires a little bit of effort if you aren’t a lunatic like me who thoroughly enjoys chopping.
In that case, you could use a chopper. Or something like that.
In my fridge I had some vegetables that were on the road to going bad, and I was having an intense bleu cheese craving. This beautiful salad is the outcome of those circumstances.
And, thank you Sunny of And Love It Too! for giving me such a fantastic name!
You all had fantastic names, by the way, but I was drawn to this one…
Summer Garden Salad with Bleu Cheese and Balsamic Vinaigrette
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 zucchini, diced
1 yellow squash, diced
1 16 oz can petite diced tomatoes
1 cup crumbled bleu cheese
1/2 cup olive oil
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp seasoned salt
Combine the veggies in a large bowl. Drizzle the dressing a little at a time, tasting along the way until you’re content. Add cheese and toss.
