Vegetable Garden Marinade

Vegetable Marinade is great for all of the summer squashes, cucumbers, cauliflower, green beans, onions, peppers and even mushrooms may be added.  Be creative.

The beans and cauliflower may need to be blanched ( placed in boiling water for 2-3 minutes to soften them some).

1 1/2 cups water
1 cup vinegar
1/2 cup olive or canola oil
1 clove garlic–minced
1  Tbls. salt
1 Tsp. peppercorns ( unground pepper)
1/2 Tsp. Oregano
( sometimes I add cilantro too)

Combine all ingredients and add to vegetables. Put in an air tight container or marinator that can be turned easily to marinate thoroughly.  If you do not have a container –you will need to mix vegetables several times prior to serving.   It is FABULOUS!  It is best if it sets overnight or at least several hrs.
