Polish Vegetable and Potato-Vegetable Salad Recipe

Below is a recipe for vegetable salad, called also Polish salad or simply salad.

This salad is very popular in Poland. It is prepared from vegetables commonly available on the farmer markets because they grow in our Polish climate. The quantities and the selection of many of the vegetables in the recipe below is optional. If potatoes are present in the salad - the salad is also called vegetable-potato salad, without potatoes - just vegetable salad. Not only taste but the color of the salad is important, so if you replace one product by the other, remember about the right balance of tastes and colors! The recipe is given in English and Polish.
