From Taste of Home's Cooking for 2 (Spring Edition). I added a julienned carrot to the veggie blend.

This was just ok. I thought the mayo was an unnecessary ingredient. I sauteed my vegetables in a little olive oil before using them - gave it a little extra flavor.

I've made this twice now. I liked it a lot and DD not as much. I used a mixture of frozen broccoli, cauliflower and carrots. I agree with the previous reviewer that the carrots enhance the appearance with their colour. Other than adding carrots I followed the recipe as written. Made for Photo Tag.

Should definitely include the carrot as part of the ingredients ~ I added 2 medium ones, as much for color as anything else! I also use only about half of the mayo, then used fresh broccoli & cauliflower & omitted the salt since there seemed to be enough elsewhere! Served this to my son & DIL since they're vegetarians, & they enjoyed it & wanted the recipe, so, you earn the 5 stars! [Made & reviewed while touring Italy during Zaar's World Tour 4]
