Marinated Vegetable Salad – fragrant and fresh

Don’t you just love it when you find a way of creating food more quickly like for this marinated vegetable salad?  To cut the vegetables into ribbons for this salad I always use a potato peeler. It’s simple, quick and creates the perfect thickness of yummy vegetable strips.  But peeler or not, this salad is delicious, fragrant and really refreshing.
