Crisp Veggie Salad

display

When I make pasta dishes I always like to serve a tossed salad to go along with the meal—that and fresh bread of course. I made spaghetti for dinner the other night, but when I opened up my fridge I was disappointed to discover not a single lettuce leaf in sight. Rather than giving up on my hope for a salad, I decided to work with what I did have. I couldn’t do a leafy salad but I did have some fresh veggies that I needed to use up.  So I gathered them and created a veggie salad, lightly coated in vinaigrette. Problem solved!
