This Veggie Salad really came about when it was a “let’s see what we have in the fridge to make a salad with” kinda meal.  I’ve been in & out lately on trips, to Chicago for a long weekend visiting friends and family, and traveling back and forth visiting my parents (my mom’s been in & out of the hospital) every weekend, so I haven’t been home much lately.  I feel like it’s taking all that I have just stay above water & feed my family every night – running to the grocery every day instead our usual weekly trips because I am just so dang scattered brained and disorganized at the moment!

Well, because this Veggie Salad was a “throw it together type of thing”, I really wasn’t expecting too much, let alone ready to take pictures of it’s yumminess for a post.  But it was a solid 10 – everything that makes a salad magnificent – it had crunchy, tangy, sweet, & texture – it was soooo good.  And it is really quite simple to throw together for one of those crazy nights where you wonder “what the hooha am I going to make for dinner tonight”?
