Steamed Vegetable Salad

If you're looking for a potluck salad for the holidays, here's a good one. It's colorful and full of flavor. Make it a day ahead to give the vegetables a chance to marinate.

2 cups broccoli florets
2 cups cauliflower florets
2 cups baby carrot, halved

1/2 cup olive oil
2 Tbs. cider vinegar
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper

Steam the vegetables, making sure they are still crisp. Rinse under cold water. Put in large bowl. Mix together the dressing ingredients in a jar with a lid, and let it set for about 20 minutes. Shake well and drizzle over vegetables. Refrigerate salad and serve cold.
