      Do you ever get sick of having the same salad over and over?!!  Well I do.  So I thought I would try something a little different...and I am SO glad that I did!

       

      Here is a recipe for some delicious marinated veggies.  I can't believe it took me THIS LONG to try making these.  I absolutely loved them and my kids were glad to see something other than our typical green salad with dinner.  This recipe makes a huge batch but the nice thing is that since there is no lettuce (or cucumbers) in the recipe, nothing gets soggy.  I was still enjoying these on Day 4 (the red peppers were starting to get just a little soft).  Keep in mind that this makes a very large batch and can easily be cut into half.

       

       

      1 small head of cauliflower, chopped into small pieces

       

      3 cups of broccoli florets

       

      1 red pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces

       

      1 head of kale, stem removed, roughly chopped

       

      2 cups of asparagus, steamed and then cooled

       

      1 large carrot, shredded

       

      2 TBS Rice Vinegar

       

      2 TBS Apple Cider Vinegar

       

      3 TBS Balsamic Vinegar *

      1/4 cup water

       

      3 TBS olive oil

       

      1/2 tsp sea salt

       

      1 TBS maple syrup

       

      juice from 1 lemon

       

      1 TBS Braggs Organic 24 Herbs and Spices, optional

       

      2 TBS fresh basil, finely chopped, optional

       

      1 TBS fresh mint leaves, finely chopped   (just use whatever spices you have or like)

       

      Simply combine all of the ingredients into a large salad bowl and refrigerate for 3-4 hours before serving.  If you have a chance, stir the vegetables a few times to ensure the marinate is well incorporated.

       

      *I kind of have an obsession with different vinegars.  Play around with what you have on hand.  The balsamic I used in this recipe was a chocolate infused balsamic and it was divine!

       

      I also had leftovers topped with warm quinoa and fresh bruschetta.....it was SOOO yummy!
