Garden Veggie Salad

IMG_0097This is not a recipe but rather a recipe idea. I first tried this salad at my friend Lidiya’s home when we were over for dinner and it was love at first bite! Since then this is how I always make my salad but Lidiya get’s the credit for the recipe. This salad tastes fresh with all the vegetables and light because instead of dressing I use Sun flower oil. It’s so satisfying, it can be a meal all on it’s own! The parsley and dill herbs add the perfect touch to this salad and are a key ingredient. Also this salad is great even on the second day if left overs are covered and refrigerated over night, it doesn’t get soggy like most salads and tastes just as great.
