Vegetable Salad

     Today's recipe is a vegetable salad. It's a healthy side dish to serve with your meal. Actually, I learned the basic ingredients of this recipe from my mother. It has always been one of my favorite salads. Well, people usually season their salads with salt and pepper, but I learned the secret ingredient; it's cumin! Yes, it works really well with these veggies, trust me!
     Vegetables I am using here are potatoes, carrots, and cauliflower. However, you may use any of your favorites. This salad is healthy, delicious, and very simple to make. I hope you like it.


- 2 Potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
- 4 Carrots, peeled and cut (4 small or 2 big carrots)
- 1 Had of small cauliflower 
- 1 small onion, finely minced
- 3 tbsp Canned corn
- 2 tbsp Green olives, cut
- 1 tbsp Cornichon (gherkin)
- 2 tbsp Parsley, finely minced
- 1 tbsp Mustard
- 2 tbsp Lemon juice
- 3 tbsp Vegetable oil
- Salt, cumin, and pepper. 


1- Boil your vegetables separately or all together in salt water for 20 to 25 min or until soft. (If you are boiling them together potatoes take less time so add it after the other veggies are semi cooked) Drain well and allow to cool.

2- Mix all the other ingredients together in a bowl. Add your veggies when they are cool enough then toss carefully. For better results, refrigerate until completely cool.

It's done!
