Dazzling Vegetable Salad

"Dazzling Vegetable Salad" (page 57) is the kind of salad I could make an entire meal out of. With beans, olives, and avocado in the mix, the salad is quite substantial. There is also lettuce, carrots, cabbage, tomatoes, and bell pepper. With all the colors and textures it is also beautiful to look at, dazzling, actually! The dressing is supposed to be a simple vinaigrette of olive oil and fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper. Instead, I used my favorite balsamic vinegar from Fustini's Oils and Vinegars ( out of Traverse City, Michigan. This vinegar is aged for 18 years before being bottled, and is so good and so mild, just a small splash on any salad makes the perfect stand-in for oil based vinaigrettes.
