Nanny’s Marinated Vegetable Salad

My Grandmother on my Mom’s side (“Nanny”) used to make this, and it became one of my favorite holiday side dishes. Just a few weeks before she passed, she sent me her recipe. So, I may as well share the love with you.


  • 3 medium zucchinis (sliced 1/4″ thick)
  • 2 medium tomatoes (seeded/diced)
  • 1 small head of cauliflower (broken into small florettes)

Combine vegetables in a bowl. Pour Italian salad dressing (or desired mixture of oil & vinegar) over vegetable mixture. Let it set for several hours*. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.

*For optimal results, let sit overnight in refrigerator.
