Marinated Veggie Salad

Before we got pounded with rain for the last few days, there was a span of 3 days that was almost summerish. It was warm and the sun was setting later and it was great weather to open all the windows. It was also great weather to grill.

The Good Husband fired up the grill for the season and we had chicken and this marinated veggie salad. While TGH was fooling with the grill, I was able to chop the veggies and it marinated while the chicken cooked. The Good Daughter went to town on this, so it is kid friendly, keeping in mind, my kid is a freak.

1 orange pepper, diced
1 large tomato, diced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 zucchini, diced
1 summer squash, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced

~Combine first seven ingredients.

~Combine the remaining ingredients in a screwtop jar and shake the shit out of to combine. Pour over veggies and toss to coat.

~Allow to sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
