Instructions
  1. For the Salad: Chop veggies into bite size pieces to equal 4 cups and place in large salad bowl. Add ¼ cup marinade and mix well. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Enjoy for 3-5 days refrigerated. Leafy greens are also a great salad choice, however, because they easily wilt, greens need to be served soon after washing. Try serving veggie confetti on a luscious bed of greens such as arugula, spinach, or colorful lettuce.
  2. For the Marinade: Combine marinade ingredients in a small food processor or blender. Mix until smooth
