Blanch the carrots, green beans, and corn. (If you want to read how to blanch read here. It is very simple, only takes a couple minutes. I do not add salt to my water, and for this recipe, I blanched all three vegetables together in same pot.)
Combine blanched vegetables with other raw vegetables and toss in a bowl. Cover and store in refrigerator until serving time!
Combine all salad dressing ingredients together in your Vitamix or high powered blender. Before serving salad, toss with the dressing!
