Kittencal's Marinated Vegetables

Total Time
Prep 24 hrs
Cook 0 mins

Plan ahead the veggies need to marinate for at least 24 hours before serving. These will keep well for a couple of days stored tightly covered in the refrigerator. The garlic is optional add in only if you are a garlic-lover as it tends to overpower the marinade! You can use pitted black olives in place of the green, add in some crushed red chili flakes for heat if desired :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add in the cauliflower and broccoli; blanch for 1 minute; drain then immediately plunge into ice or very cold water to stop the cooking process; drain well.
  2. In a large glass bowl combine all veggies with the olives.
  3. In a small bowl whisk together all marinade ingredients until completely combined and no sugar or salt granules remain.
  4. Pour over veggies; toss well, cover and chill for 24 hours before serving.

A very good and basic recipe but I think it needed more salt. I didn't bother to cook the veggies at all and they softened up very nicely. Next time I will add some more kosher salt or maybe even season salt to see how it turns out.

Absolutely fantastic!! Used all raw veggies. Also, used about 1/4 cup of raw apple cider vinegar instead of the 3/4 cup white vinegar. Superb!!

This is a WONDERFUL marinated veggie recipe! It has a very nice mix of veggies and a good flavor. I used everything, including the fresh garlic. I did use Enova oil and subbed Splenda for the sugar. I heated the marinade for 2 minutes in the microwave. The colors of this salad remind me of the 70's and it's great for Halloween! Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
