It is best when served fresh. Chop the vegetables, add pressed garlic together with mayo, mix and the salad is ready to be devoured. It can be served not only as the side salad but also as the main dish for lunch (but make sure to have a bigger portion) or you even can have it as a filling for your sandwich. It pairs great with crunchy toasted bread.

If you want to make life harder, you always can add more ingredients. Corn, fresh cucumber or red bell pepper, hard-boiled eggs and chopped fresh herbs, some mustard added to the dressing and you have a completely different recipe.
