Quick, Easy, Delicious, Finger Salad

Sharing is caring!


I don’t like to heat up my kitchen in the summer.  We grill a lot and add in different salads and veggies.  This Finger Salad is hearty with a super satisfying crunch.  I love to make this up for a dinner, then munch on it for lunches or snacks. It’s kid approved (my daughter asked for it for her birthday dinner this year!). And it is always a great hit at BBQ s and potlucks, too!

Of course, you could always cut the recipe in half for a smaller batch.

note:  I usually use olive oil, then if I refrigerate, just pull it out early so the oil will liquefy again.  But sometimes I mix in an oil that is liquid at colder temps,  grapeseed or avocado are good choices.
