vegetable "salad"

This dish was inspired by a great mommy I went to high school with and shes become a great FB friend, thanks Jessica!!! She posted this to her FB wall last night and I was totally inspired!! This is something you could add remove, add more of or less of depending on your taste!! 

My version:

half bag of frozen corn or 2 to 3 cobs of corn cut off of the cob
half of a cucumber diced
1 of each; yellow, red, green, and orange bell pepper
1 bunch or about a half cup to cup of diced scallions
1/4 of the bag of baby carrots coarsely chopped
1/4 to 1/2 Pound edemame
I didn't this time but thought of adding chic peas

other ideas:
red onion

I made a home made cilantro garlic dressing to have as an option but you can mix all of that together with an entire bottle of Garlic Expressions Dressing and its ready to go! I left the salad naked because I am the type that likes to have different options which is the reason I also made the home made dressing. It would be better to blend the veggies and the dressing because the longer they sit and marry the tastier it is. What a great picnic salad this is!! If you try it let me know and if you came up with a variation even better share with us!!
