Rub salad bowl and the inside of the lid with all of the garlic cloves(save garlic). Cover bowl and let stand in the refrigerator as long as possible, overnight is best. Shred all of the vegetables as small as possible and chop up left over garlic.
Combine all of the sauce ingredients together and stir until the vegetables are creamy with the sauce. Place vegetables in the garlic marinated bowl and stir well. Cover and let stand in the refrigerator until cool. This gets better as the salad marinates together. This salad will keep good in the fridge for 5 - 6 days and can be frozen for later use.
