This is a wonderful, quick and easy dish that's great for summertime, when plenty of good, fresh vegetables are available. Get all your ingredients ready before you begin cooking this because the cooking part is quite fast. Adapted from Sam Choy's Sampler

Good and easy and great for easy summer suppers--and surprisingly this is also very filling! The only change I made was using a green bell pepper instead of the yellow. I also used the snow peas and green onions choices. I think this is very adaptable to whatever vegetables are available either fresh or in the refrig. Thanks Jude for sharing!
