Mexican veggies potato salad

Flavorful, colorful and very filling, this Mexican veggie potato salad makes the perfect choice for a vegan meal but goes well also as a side dish along with grilled meat.
I have to tell you that this salad is my husband’s creation. My intention was to prepare a potato and beetroot salad, but his reaction was: “beetroot again?!?! Can you, please, keep the beetroot for your self and make for me another salad with Mexican mix vegetables?”
So, I postponed my potato and beetroot salad for the next week and I made a delicious Mexican veggie potato salad.
This salad is also easy to make. Mexican mix veggies are already chopped and all you have to do is to cook and drain them. You also have to cook the potatoes, it’s true, but meanwhile you can do other things.
