Yum, perfect plate of goodness! I didn't change one thing, except sub sweet potatoes for some carrots. (didn't have any) this is so good, a group of us ate this within minutes. The dipping sauce is da bomb, I could of dipped anything into it. This was wonderful, and I'm glad I was able to enjoy this...as well as everyone on the farm. Perfect! Made for ZWT 7
An absolutely great combo of veggies & we thoroughly enjoyed using the fingers (well, at least I did, while my other half is a bit more picky)! I especially liked the inclusion of the sweet potato, one of my all-time-favorite vegetables! Thanks for a great keeper of a recipe with this one!
