Default 9-veggie salad recipe?

Does anyone know which veggies go into that 9-veggie salad they're always making at those cooking demos at expos?

I bought myself a King Kutter (that thing with the different shaped cones), and I LOVE it, but what I really want to make with it is one of those 9-veggie salads, and I can't for the life of me remember what the 9 veggies were! I think that among them were zucchini, onions, cucumber . . . but I really don't recall the rest for certain. It was very colorful!

Please help. I would like to make this salad for a BBQ I'm going to Easter Sunday. )

Aha! I did a more refined web search and found it on one of the cooking demo companies' websites! As you will see from the recipe, it is actually an 8-vegetable salad (I think they used 9 at my demo, but whatever, it looks the same!).

Here's the recipe from the Cook For Life website:

INGREDIENTS:
1 Carrot, cone #4
1 Zucchini, cone #5
1 Yellow Squash, cone #5
1 Cucumber, cone #5
1 Large Celery stalk, cone #2
1/4 Wedge Red & Green Cabbage (with core), cone #2
1/4 Wedge White Onion (with core), cone #2
1-2” slice Butternut Squash, cone #1

(The cone #s refer to the cones that go with the Kitchen/King Kutter device that they use the salad to demo.)

DIRECTIONS:
1. Place a salad bowl under the Kitchen Kutter and cut all vegetables using the cones indicated in recipe.
2. Mix all ingredients, add dressing of your choice and serve.

Nutritional Analysis per Serving: 36 calories, 0 g. fat, 0 mg. cholesterol, 78 mg. sodium, 9 g. carbohydrates, 5 g. protein

At the demos, they toss this with either extra virgin olive oil or Italian dressing. It's very yummy!

It is 9, it's a wedge of red cabbage and a wedge of green cabbage-but how much is a 1/4 of a wedge?
Does the raw butternut squash taste ok? Or is it more like shredded?

*lol* Oh, you're right, it is 9!

You know, I don't remember how they did the squash at the demo (I'm not even sure they used the exact same vegetables, but it looked like the photo on the website), and I haven't used my King Kutter enough to have the cones memorized yet. I'll try to remember to post back this weekend after I've made some.
