I love summer time! 

It is all about family fun and spending time with friends. When we get together during the summer my go-to entertaining food is a big BBQ and a vegetable tray to snack on while we wait for everything to cook. I also always buy way too much food… I have a huge (irrational) fear of not having enough food. It's never actually happened, or even come close to happening, but I still worry about it! 

The one thing that I always end up having way too much of is veggies from the vegetable tray. That abundance of food inspired me to created this salad. My vegetable tray salad with Greek yogurt ranch dip.

To make this super easy salad I take the vegetable tray leftovers and I chop up all the veggies and add the dip as a dressing. It's so easy and delish… plus it makes a great side dish!

Of course you can also make this salad just because… no party necessary!

I did just that yesterday. I headed to Walmart and bought Hidden Valley Greek Yogurt Dip Mix, some of our favorite vegetables and greek yogurt. I found the Greek dip mix with the regular one in the powdered mix area.

Hidden Valley Greek Yogurt Dip Mixes are new formulas specifically optimized to deliver the same great Hidden Valley Ranch taste and flavor when mixed with Greek Yogurt! Hidden Valley Greek Yogurt Dip Mixes are both available at Walmart and the new formula provides the same great Ranch flavor with less fat, more protein and lower calories.

Then I headed home and started chopping!

Quick tip… toss the salad very well and then refrigerate it. The dip spreads well on the veggies when it's not right out of the refrigerator… but once it's spread on the veggies put it right back in the refrigerator until it is ready to eat.

Everytime I make this I'm always asked for the recipe and I just smile because I know how much they are going to love how great it tastes and how easy it is to make!
