A good friend of mine is always on the look out for healthy and super tasty food.  I am indebted to her for this recipe that is easy, healthy, and super tasty for summer picnics and such.  What an amazing use of the frozen veg!  They really do stay crispy and full of flavor.  On her advice I started with California mix (broccoli, carrots, cauliflower)...  but have now moved into stirfry mix (adds baby corns to the mix) and others...  GREEN BEANS DO NOT WORK.  So choose a mix that does not include these...  or you will have to pic them out!  

Enjoy your summer BBQ feast complete with healthy Marinaded Veg Salad!
