Weekend Fare: Vegetarian Salad

**Off the Shelf will be appearing tomorrow instead of today and will be the June magazine edition!**


I will admit that I didn't set out to make a vegetarian dinner but somehow I managed to have some spoiled chicken. So, the dinner plan changed and we weren't too sorry to see the meat go. This recipe does not require any cooking which is awesome for a hot summer day. We enjoyed it for an evening dinner on the deck. The bright colors are a beautiful addition to any table.
