Vegetable salads that keep or even get better, when already dressed
, for at least a few hours?

We tend to eat in our kitchen, even when entertaining. So I prefer to only serve things that can be completely made up quite a while in advance and then held in the oven or in the fridge or out on a counter, while I clean all the preparatory dishes and put everything away.
I like dressed salads, but the ones I usually do for my family are a challenge in this regard, because they have to be dressed at the table, or just before.
Usually I just roast vegetables, because those hold nicely. But I'd like recipes or ideas for dressed salads of vegetables that keep, or even get better, for at least a few hours (or even overnight!).
I'm not interested in pasta salads or grain salads or potato salads -- I have several of each in my repertoire, but I'm looking for something that would be served alongside a meal that has plenty of carbs already.
