You can pretty much put anything into this mix, the ingredients list is just a suggestion. All the vegetables should be in a dice of about the same size, so if you’re using cauliflower or broccoli flowerets, they should be about the same size as the rest of the dice. Instead of discarding the smaller, tender stalks of the cauliflower, dice those up, too. Cooked beets are good to use as well, but they will turn the salad pink, so either add them at the end or use golden beets instead.
A tiered steamer makes short work of this. Put the tenderest veggies in the top basket for quick removal.
If you are on a neutropenic diet, wear gloves if you use your hands to mix the salad. Also, depending on your protocol, you may want to pass on the parsley garnish.
If you are pressed for time, you can use frozen vegetables, the harder ones like peas, corn, beans and carrots work best. Be sure to steam them straight from the freezer to conserve their taste and nutrients.
For dressing, try our Basic Mustard Vinaigrette or Sesame Remoulade!
