I adapted this from a cookbook. My husband and I love it. We eat it room temp most of the time, but it's nice chilled in hot weather, too. The kinds of veggies are pretty flexible - add or subtract whatever veggies you like. You can also change the types of vinegars to suit your taste. Times are estimates and cook time is counted as prep time since I prep one veggie while steaming another. Serve with warm, crusty bread for a delicious dinner!
