Vegetable salad

Salad

My paternal aunt who prefers to have raw vegetables and fruits more than anything for her supper time, had prepared this salad at home when we visited her last month. This salad is so refreshing and I love the way how she used so many vegetables into one salad. I was full after having this salad and felt wonderful. I usually make salads or soups everyday before having dinner, so this salad made a new entry into my list and I prepare this most often than any other salad!
