Brown Box Style Italian Salad

We all have those few go to salads that we make for Summer gatherings. One of my favorite was inspired by the salad a friend brought up camping years ago. I loved it!

What makes this salad Brown Box Style is the abundance of fresh chopped organic vegetables. The more colors of vegetables you use the prettier it turns out. My favorite recipes are adaptable using lots of fresh seasonal vegetables I have on hand. This recipe is perhaps the most versatile ever. It really could not be simpler and it always turns out great!

Notes: I normally have Simply Organic Italian Dressing mix, olive oil and white wine vinegar to mix on hand. I also keep rainbow rotelle and canned sliced olives on hand and we love to include those but they are completely optional.

Directions: In a large salad bowl combine a mix of your favorite chopped veggies with Italian dressing, rotelle pasta and sliced olives. Toss well. Here are a few ideas:

  • Rainbow Rotelle Pasta
  • Black Sliced Olives
  • Red Cabbage
  • Sweet Yellow Onion or Red Onion
  • Carrots
  • Sweet Bell Peppers
  • Green Kale
  • Cauliflower
  • Broccoli
  • Celery
  • Summer Squash or Zucchini
  • Spinach or Lettuce

For a limited time we are also making the Simply Organic Italian Dressing Mix available with your home delivery. I always keep several on hand since Italian dressing is so versatile.
