This colorful mixture of vegetables makes a great late Summer meal. Add cooked, diced shrimp or chicken for a hearty meal, or go lighter with just veggies.


Salad:

  • 1 lb. cooked, peeled chopped shrimp or diced cooked chicken (optional)
  • 1 Cup carrots, peeled and diced
  • 2 Cups corn-off-the-cob (about 3 ears)
  • 1 Cup snap peas, cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 Cup zucchini, peeled and sliced (1 small)

  • 1/8 tsp. CAYENNE RED PEPPER
  • 1 TB. warm water
  • 1/3 Cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 2 tsp. white wine or rice vinegar
