"I have taken this to MANY family and pot luck gatherings and it always is a huge hit. If you have other favorite veggies, you may add, or omit something if your family doesn't like it. Broccoli, cauliflower and mushrooms are just the basics."

It was good but I only used half of the marinade-it was so much oil. Next time I will definitely cut down on the oil.

This was okay but I won't make it again. I liked it well enough that I ate my portion, but my husband hated it. I expected the mustard to give it more tang, but it wasn't tangy at all. It tasted like pure sugar and A LOT of oil. Cutting down on the oil by half would probably improve it a lot, but it would still be just way too sweet. I did like the decorative effect of the poppy seeds.

This recipe is delicious and quite flexible. I used baby carrots and green, red, and yellow pepper strips and all marinated very nicely. It was very popular with my friends and family.

Everybody in my family loved these veggies,especially my son's vegetarian girl friend.Great way to use your garden vegetables!

YUM YUM YUM!!! This recipe is fabulous. I made the marinade according to others' recommendations. I cut the sugar and the oil in half, and it was PERFECT. You can definitely tast the sugar so half is without a doubt enough. I'm sure if you're eating sugar free (I am but since I am bringing this to a pot luck I didn't want to experiment just now) you could make it with Equal or similar. Because I didn't notice this is supposed to marinade overnight, and since mine will only marinate for a couple of hours, I didn't add the onions or the mushrooms. However I did a LARGE head of cauliflower and almost 2 heads of broccoli (my fave), 2 stalks of celery, and took someone else's suggestion and did one red, yellow and gr. pepper. And that's it! It's truly yummy!

Great recipe - definitely a repeater and oh so easy. A big hit with potluck crowd and hubby. I used a frozen veggie blend and less oil and sugar as suggested in other reviews.

This was easy to put together and has a nice sort of sweet and sour flavor to it.
