I'm glad I found this because I was trying to find a good way to incorporate more veggies into my diet without having to dip them in salad dressing -- which starts to defeat the purpose. Anyways, the only thing I changed was I substituted yellow bell pepper for the celery since I don't care for celery. Thanks for a healthy snack idea!

I was hesitant to try a sugar/basil mix on cold vegetables, but it was a very pleasant surprise! The flavors are subtle and make a very nice combination. Thanks for getting us out of our rut--we usually douse these veggies in Italian...this is a nice alternative.

I really enjoyed this recipe. The only change i made was to use cilantro in place of the basil. The carrot, celery and zucchini really adsorb the flavour of the marinade. Delicious. Thanks for the recipe.

The only vinegar I can have is Apple Cider Vinegar, so I substituted that for the red wine vinegar...was not impressed with the result. I'm sure it would be better with the red wine though.

Yumm. We liked this a lot. I'm always looking for ways to incorporate raw veggies into our diets, and this is great to have on hand for snacks and lunches. Changed the veggies around a bit (used what was available at the farmers market), but kept the same ratio of veggies to marinade. Also added one clove of crushed garlic and a dash of red pepper flakes and left out the sugar. Thanks for this great idea, will make again for sure.
