Mixed salad

This is an unconditional favorite for dinner. It’s a salad I tried, when I am a strong liker of “Coleslaw” but just that having it regularly got me a little disinterested. I managed a successful variation, very carefully with the proportions though, but was delighted when it came out a winner!

All the vegetable – carrots, potatoes and peas are boiled in water with salt and pepper.This gives a flavor to every single piece of those vegetables in the salad.
