Lotza Flavor Marinated Vegetable Salad

If you like vegetables with a lot of flavor, this marinated vegetable dish is a basic recipe you can make and have in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. It is a nutritious accompaniment to many chicken and fish dishes.

Prep and Cook Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:
  • 6 medium sized Brussels sprouts, tough outer leaves and excess stem removed
  • 1 large carrot peeled and cut in 1 inch chunks
  • 1 cup large size broccoli florets
  • 1 cup green beans, cut in 1 inch lengths
  • 2 cups medium crimini mushrooms, cut in half
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut in 1" chunks
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, cut in 1" chunks
  • 1 medium onion sliced thickly
  • Marinade:
  • 3 TBS honey
  • 4 TBS fresh lemon juice
  • 2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 TBS minced fresh oregano
  • 3 medium cloves garlic, pressed
  • salt and cracked black pepper to taste
  • pinch red pepper flakes

Directions:

  1. Bring salted water to a boil in large pan. Place colander in sink, and set up a bowl of ice water.
  2. Cut vegetables to appropriate sizes and have ready. (For this salad it is important to cut vegetables in fairly large pieces. They will hold up better and last longer.)
  3. When water is boiling, add carrots and whole Brussels sprouts, and cook for 4 minutes. Then add broccoli, pepper, green beans, mushrooms and onion. Cook for another 4 minutes.
  4. Drain through colander and immediately put into ice water. Let chill for about 10 minutes and drain well so flavor is not diluted. If possible, lay vegetables out on paper towels and pat dry.
  5. Make marinade by whisking together ingredients, adding olive oil a little at a time.
  6. Put into glass container or bowl, add marinade, cover and put into refrigerator for at least 1 hour

Nutritional Profile

Introduction to Recipe Rating System Chart

In order to better help you identify recipes that feature a high concentration of nutrients for the calories they contain, we created a Recipe Rating System. This system allows us to highlight the recipes that are especially rich in particular nutrients. The following chart shows the nutrients for which Lotza Flavor Marinated Vegetable Salad is either an excellent, very good, or good source (below the chart you will find a table that explains these qualifications). If a nutrient is not listed in the chart, it does not necessarily mean that the recipe doesn't contain it. It simply means that the nutrient is not provided in a sufficient amount or concentration to meet our rating criteria. (To view this recipe's in-depth nutritional profile that includes values for dozens of nutrients - not just the ones rated as excellent, very good, or good - please use the link below the chart.) To read this chart accurately, you'll need to glance back up to see the ingredients used in the recipe and the number of serving sizes provided by the recipe. Our nutrient ratings are based on a single serving. For example, if a recipe makes 4 servings, you would be receiving the nutrient amounts listed in the chart by eating 1/4th of the combined ingredients found in the recipe. Now, returning to the chart itself, you can look next to the nutrient name in order to find the nutrient amount it offers, the percent Daily Value (DV%) that this amount represents, the nutrient density that we calculated for this recipe and nutrient, and the rating we established in our rating system. For most of our nutrient ratings, we adopted the government standards for food labeling that are found in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's "Reference Values for Nutrition Labeling."
