Red Potato, Green Beans & Cauliflower Salad

Except for the orange color from the carrots, this salad could be called the Italian Salad. Green, white and red like the Italian flag.
After all, Italians are in with chopped veggie salads. They call them Antipasto—meaning "before the meal" or the traditional first course. On special occasions the antipasto includes sliced, cured meats. Of course, olives are always included.

This salad would be wonderful served with a small bowl of olives to toss in the mix.
