This is really more about a salad-making technique since you can use just about any kind of vegetable. . . but it sure is tasty and a favorite of ours especially when you want to show off a lot of different veggies (or if you have picky veggie eaters!).
1/2 Vidalia Onion
1/4 pound Snap Beans
1 Summer Squash
1 bunch Radishes
- Prepare 2 cups Orzo or Rice
- Wash trim and Lettuce for salad
- Wash, trim and chop veggies into ½” (small) dice.
- Mix vegetables with warm Orzo or Rice and chill for one hour. The residual heat will just make the veggies a little soft, not cooked.
- 15-20 minutes before serving mix in the Buttermilk Ranch Dressing so that the flavors get all happy. Serve the salad on top of prepared Lettuce.
