Mixed Veggies N Olive Salad

Refreshing salad with black olives...simple salad with cooked potatoes,few cucumber pieces, grated carrots, boiled corn kernels and black olives dressed with olive oil dressing...prefect for lunch also for dinner!!! potato is a versatile vegetable, rich in carbohydrate prepared in loads of variety way while carrot is rich in beta -carotene, which he body stores and converts to vitamin A, benefits of carrots is good for vision which proved scientifically....One cup of corn provides 18.4% of the daily recommendation of fiber. Its high fiber content is one of the biggest benefits of corn. Fiber has been shown to help lower cholesterol levels and help reduce the risk of colon cancer...Olives are concentrated in monounsaturated fats and a good source of vitamin E.Olives are also very light foods contain low calories, but at the same time very filling..This is my entry for Madhuri's Serve me some...Salads..
