Recipe came from Better Homes and Gardens magazine. It really is excellent. It makes quite a bit but can be easily adjusted. I have made it for large gatherings and small family dinners. It is very good at room temperature so it's great for potlucks or BBQs too. The recipe calls for rosemary but any of your favorite herb(s) would do (fresh is always better but I've often used dried). Hope you like!

We just loved the combinations of vegetables and the Dressing was very good, but I would cut back on the balsamic vinegar as I thought it overpowered the veggies a little. My potatoes turned out perfectly cooked but I did add more chicken broth as it seemed to dry out during the cooking process. I'll make this one again for sure with variations of vegetables.
