In a medium bowl, mix the marinade ingredients. I used an immersion blender to mix. You can mix any way you would like, even with a whisk.

Pour the marinade over the veggies and mix. Cover and refrigerate for at least on hour or longer. But honestly, mine never last that long. We are into it after 1/2 hour and it’s still delicious!

  1. My grandmother used to keep a perpetual container of this salad in the fridge. As we used it up, she’d just keep adding more
    veggies to the mix, with the original vinegar dressing, which miraculously never seemed to run out. Somehow, like sourdough starter, it just kept replenishing itself!
