Out if this world veggie dish and low in fat if you are watching your calories. Made this for a bereavement reception for a church family. They loved it and requested the recipe. Very colorful dish and easy for a pot luck.

Easy, colorful, and tasted great! I've already made a second batch! I've made countless versions of marinated vegetables. Using a ranch packet changed the flavor into something different and tasty! I used splenda and appreciated the recipe using no oil. Thank you for sharing this keeper!
