yummy summer salad

This is a great yummy summer salad and can stay in your fridge up to 2 months. I like a fresh vegetable salad that will last several days. This makes two quarts. You can carry it to gatherings with ease or make and store in refrigerator. It’s also nice as a drop off gift for a friend in a pint jar. Plus, it so colorful.This is my favorite, go-to marinated vegetable recipe! I usually add sliced fresh yellow squash or zucchini and sometimes a fresh jalapeno or other hot pepper from the garden. This is the 4th year I have made it and as always, it is delicious!
