Quick & Easy Marinated Veggie Salad – The Perfect BBQ side

I’m always searching for new sides to compliment Mike’s never-ending BBQ dishes. I’m pretty sure if he had it his way; our suppers would consist of only meat and carbs. I am lucky, my kids typically are not that picky when it comes to eating their veggies. But let’s be honest, by Mid-July everyone gets bored of the plain jane lettuce salad. I enjoy trying new salads…. but find myself coming back to this marinated veggie salad often, for two main reasons. One; it is so fast and easy to whip up. Perfect for weekends along side burgers, salmon, steak, or chicken. Two, despite the ease of making it, it always seems to be a hit.

Fresh veggies, of course, are always the best. Typically this time of year, I would be able to start really enjoying the fresh veggies from the garden. Unfortunately, this year (because of a move); I do not have a garden. However, a quick trip to the Saturday Farmer’s Market was all I needed to get me back into the groove. For this salad, I have used red peppers, yellow peppers, cucumbers, and cherry tomatoes. However, feel free to throw in any favorite and just simply go with what is in season at the time. I have, in the past, thrown in cauliflour, green peppers, and red onion. Red onion can really add to the flavor…. however, it is one veggie that I can’t seem to get my kids to eat raw, which is why it is omitted today!
