Marinated Summer Vegetables

Marination is an excellent way to bring seasoning to food. Although its mostly known in preparation of protein, you can also use this simple method to give a depth of flavor to vegetables. This recipe uses a simple vinegar & olive oil vinaigrette along with other ingredients most have on hand. A few hours will be sufficient, but if you can allow to sit for 4-8 hours or overnight, the taste will be more prominent.
