Italian Marinated Vegetables

We had a neighborhood International Night (non-nutritarian) featuring Italy. While others made tortes, cakes, foccacia bread and meaty ravioli, I chose to showcase some simple vegetables.

1 head cauliflower, broken into florets
5 carrots, sliced
5 celery stalks, sliced
1 cucumber, slied
1 c. white vinegar
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
1/4 c. agave nectar
1 Tb. Italian seasoning mix, below

Steam the cauliflower until just barely tender. Mix with remaining vegetables in a 2-quart container with a lid. Combine vinegars, nectar and seasoning mix. Pour over vegetables. Stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Serves 8

Italian Seasoning Mix
1 Tb. each of garlic powder, onion powder and parsley flakes
2 Tb. oregano
1 tsp. each of black pepper and dried basil
1/4 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. salt (optional)

Combine and store in an airtight container

To your health and happiness,
