Tangy Marinated Vegetables

Tangy Marinated Vegetables

Serves 8

This is a beautiful take-along side dish when made in and served out of a 1-quart canning jar. Eat these veggies with your fingers to satisfy a picnic craving for something salty and crunchy—without resorting to a bag of chips.
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbs. dried oregano
  • 2 Tbs. dried basil
  • 1 cup hemp seeds
  • ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup carrot sticks or baby carrots
  • 1 cup small button mushrooms, halved

1. To make Marinade: Whisk together all ingredients in large bowl.

2. Pour Marinade into 1-quart canning jar with lid or large resealable plastic bag. Add all Vegetables, and shake to coat.

3. Refrigerate 4 hours, or overnight, shaking mixture occasionally. Enjoy straight out of jar, like pickles.

Modified this but used the same idea of the receipe. I used Miss Dash table blend for my seasoning, along with some dried oregano. I also put a dash of salt and some garlic powder. I only used olive oil, because I had no vegetable oil and I used pomagrante red wine vinegar. I used the carrots, I had some green onions that needed to be used and a green pepper I bought from the local vegetable stand and cut that into pieces. I figure If I do not like the taste, I can use the veggies in a stir fry.

Absolutely untasty. Did the recipe mean tsp not Tbs? What a waste of good veggies.

I loved this.....I made it years ago and have kept making suggestion is the longer it marinates the better the herbs will be....the first time i made it, it was a disaster!! I didn't let it sit long enough and the dry herb took over!

any suggestions for a mushroom substitution?

Mary - 2012-05-15 12:57:45

I'm confused. There is a lot of oil and not very much vinegar and no salt at all. Could someone double check this recipe, please?

It doesn't say they are pickled, it says "Marinated" and that you can enjoy them straight out of the jar "like pickles" :)

I keep making this recipe to serve as a side dish with dinner every summer. Also, the photos in this particular issue are compelling--sometimes I just take it out to remember hot weather vacations.

I think reducing the herbs to teaspoons would do the trick. Otherwise, it sounds light and easy.

Harmony - 2011-05-25 22:36:41

Is that correct? 3/4 cup of oil for 4 cups of veggies? Looks good, tho.

I think it would work better to marinate them in a shallow dish, and put them in the jar just before taking them to the picnic or wherever...

I agree with Susan on May 27, 2010. Your favorite Italian dressing is always a reliable goto for quick, satisfying flavor.

Has anyone come up with variations/adjustments that they have found work?

beth - 2010-06-11 23:21:49

Agreed with the other commenters: the herbs overpower the veggies. I almost wonder if the recipe is supposed to be in teaspoons instead of Tablespoons.

K. - 2010-06-06 22:57:16

Just add Italian dressing, it's way easier. :)
