Mixed Vegetable And Olive Salad

Today's my salad is with crunchy vegetables and olives. I don't know why i like the flavor of olives in my salads so that i use a lot of olives in my salads. Actually i wanted to post Greek salad for today's post. I have every thing except feta cheese and Kalamata olives, I couldn't compromise. Greek salad is a traditional summer salad in Greek cuisine so i don't want to change the traditional recipe any way. I scratch my head for long time for today s salad recipe, because i planed for Greek salad and that idea was failed and i have to change my mind in the last movement. Finely some how i got this idea of mixing vegetables with olives. Believe me this salad is very refreshing and i like the taste too. Hope you all like this......
