2 cups small broccoli florets

1 1/2 cups shredded green cabbage (about 1/4 lb.)

1/2 cup cubed yellow squash (small)

1/2 cup cubed zucchini (small)

1/2 cup diagonally slice celery

1/2 cup shredded carrot

1/2 cup short thin green bell pepper strips

1/4 cup slivered red onions

1 cup clear French dressing (see below)
In a large bowl, combine vegetables. Pour dressing over vegetables and toss lightly to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Makes 8 servings.
Tip: Do not peel zucchine and yellow squash. Their colorful skins add to this salad’s eye appeal. CLEAR
