Marinated the vegetables overnight give this fresh salad a terrific flavor.
Combine all ingredients except cherry tomatoes and salt and pepper in large bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight, stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes and toss. Season with salt and pepper.
Try using these add-ons: 8 oz cooked pasta, cooked shrimp to make this a main course, or garbanzo beans to make it a vegetarian main course.
