Zucchini Salad Jardiniere (P, TNT)
Source: Spice and Spirit
Serves: 4 to 6

3 small zucchini
3 carrots
1 green pepper
1 red onion
6 radishes
6 scallions
1/2 lb. mushrooms

1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1/2 tsp. dry mustard

Make Salad:
Leave zucchini unpeeled and cut into 1/2" slices. Place in a large salad bowl.

Cut carrots and green pepper into julienne strips and add.

Cut onion into slices and separate into rings and add.

Slice radishes, scallions, and mushrooms and combine with other salad ingredients.

Make Dressing and Assembly:
Combine dressing in a jar and shake well. Pour over salad and toss to coat vegetables.

Serve chilled. This salad keeps for a day or two covered in the refrigerator.

Poster's Notes:
I often serve this as part of a buffet where there are other salads containing peppers, mushrooms, and/or onions. This salad is equally delicious using only carrots, zucchini, and scallions.

Do not eliminate any of the ingredients of the dressing. It's worth buying the turmeric if you don't usually have it on hand.
