Marinated Vegetable Salad for Vegetarians and Wine Lovers

The recipe below is likely a vegetarian’s delight. For anyone who likes to cook with wine, the salad dressing calls for 1/4 c of white wine. While the recipe is categorized as a salad or side dish, you might want to make more and serve it as a main dish. Consider serving it with soup or home baked bread. Enjoy!
