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!

This is a nice cool 'veggie' dish for the hot summers in our location. I think that I will add sliced onion to it for a little more flavor next time, but still we liked it alot. Thanks for this nice cool recipe!

This was very easy to put together. I had this along side a hot sandwich I made for dinner. I used asparagus, sliced bell peppers, zucchini, cucumber and baby carrots. I will make this again for sure, and it's going to be great for lunches this week. :)
