Patio Pizzeria- Artisan Pizza and Flatbreads on the GrillOnce you get the gist of this farm fresh vegetable salad, you can make it your own with your choice of fresh vegetables from your garden or the market. The vegetables can be sliced thinly or chopped into chunks; let your time and mood guide you. This salad makes a lot but keeps for another day refrigerated. It’s great with pizza, panini, bruschetta, focaccia, or just about anything grilled.
