I'm forever in search of new ways of preparing vegetables. New salads, fritters, breakfast options, you name it I try them all. The find this week is a marinated vegetable salad from The Seasoned Mom. Hmmmm, marinated vegetables sound interesting to me. I like the idea of putting on a dressing (marinade), putting in the fridge and have it taste better after it sits for a while. Sure beats soggy salads.
This variation looks like an old family recipe and when mom passes it down to daughter, there's something that makes it more interesting. The best - it takes 10 minutes to put together and lasts a few days in the fridge.
3/4 cup slice mushrooms
3/4 cup halved cherry or grape tomatoes
3/4 cup sliced zucchini
3/4 cup peeled chopped carrots
1 small sweet bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup broccoli florets
1/2 cup cauliflower florets
1/2 tsp minced garlic (I used a little more)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp chopped fresh chives
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp olive oil
1. Place all vegetables in a large bowl
2. Place all remaining ingredients in a jar with a lid and shake until completely combined.
3. Pour dressing over vegetables
4. Refridgerate salad at least 2 hours (or overnight)
Fresh, addictive and healthy
