1. In a kettle of boiling water, blanch each raw vegetable separately for approximately 3 to 5 minutes, or until each vegetable is crisp-tender, transferring them as they are cooked with a slotted spoon to a bowl of ice and cold water to stop the cooking. Then, transfer the vegetables with the slotted spoon to a towel and pat dry.
2. The vegetables may be cooked 1 day in advance and kept covered and chilled.
3. Make the vinaigrette: In a blender or food processor blend together the shallot, garlic, mustard, lemon juice, and vinegar until the mixture is smooth. Salt and pepper to taste. With the motor running, add the oil in a stream and blend the dressing until it is emulsified.
4. Put blanched vegetables in a large bowl, add vinaigrette and gently toss to coat. Salad will keep for about 3 days, covered in the refrigerator.
