Let’s make Marinated Summer Veggie Salad. This is a great way to clean out your fridge and use up any random veggies you have. The beauty of this recipe is it gets better the longer it sits as the flavors mesh and the veggies soak in the marinade. It’s all raw veggies so no cooking required. It’s crunchy, flavorful and filling! Plus it is gorgeous to look at with the rainbow colors.
