This recipe was inspired by a delicious salad served at Ottawa University Alumni Restaurant in 2007. Just right sized vegetables which have marinated in a savory dressing is a meal in itself. For healthy at work or school lunches, this easy to prepare salad will become one of your favourites. A great dish for taking along on a picnic, or a welcome addition to a potluck dinner.
