This was a real hit at my house! Even my toddler couldn't get enough of the veggies. Very quick to make with just some chopping & slicing prep, this was an easy weeknight meal. The only thing we would change in the future is to not cook the onions first by themselves. It's simply personal preference that we like our onions a little crisper & as my DS described it, "Still in self-defense mode, where they are emitting toxins that burn your eyes!' LOL I don't know that I want them raw, but I think I'll try starting all the veggies at the same time next time. :) Oh, and actually, after taking the photos I squeezed the lemon slice I used for garnish & ended up really liking the dimension the lemon added. I think lemon might be a good sub for the white wine vinegar if needed, or just in addition to it. :) Thanks for sharing, lazyme. We'll be making this again. Made & enjoyed in Don's memory. You're in our thoughts, lazyme!
