A pretty salad...a few ingredients but is very good. It is one of those salads you can add something else if you dont like one of the ingredients. You might even want to try adding chopped jalapenos. I personally do not care for peas and leave them out so add what you personally like. The dressing "marinade" is what makes this salad as well as the shredded cheese.

How to Make Vegetable Salad


  1. Combine vegetables and cheese together and set aside while you are putting together the dressing ingredients.
  2. Combine the dressing ingredients and add them to the vegetables. Marinate for 6 to 8 hours.
  3. If you prefer, like I do, I steam the cut up broccoli and cauliflower with a little water in a covered dish in the microwave for about 30 seconds to a minute. That way they are still crisp but not so hard tasting. Make sure they are cooled down though before you add the cheese :)
