Marinated vegetables have been around for ages, but store-bought versions may have added sugar and salt that isn't necessary. Try making them at home for an easy way to bump up the flavor in any dish. *They do need to be prepared in advance to allow them time to marinate. Get some going the night before and you'll be set to enjoy them the next day. They go great on eggs in the morning, in wraps and sandwiches and alongside protein such as grilled chicken. The remaining marinade can also be used as a dressing for salads.
