Marinated Salad (Everything But The Kitchen Sink)

After spending the weekend in Florida, eating lots of French Fries (since, that is the only "vegan" thing that most restaurants serve), Amy was feeling the need for something colorful and crunchy. She decided to use all of the vegetables in her house and concoct this fanciful dish.

1 large cucumber diced
1 red bell pepper seeded and diced
1 yellow bell pepper seeded and diced
1 pint of grape tomatoes
1 bunch green onions sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
1 pkg cremini mushrooms sliced
2 champagne or honey mangoes diced
2 avocados diced
1/2 cup unsweetened dried cherries
1/2 cup roasted pepitas (those are the insides of the pumpkin seeds)
1 cup organic dairy free poppy seed dressing
Blend. Chill.

Or you can add any array of vegetables you'd like.
