LOW-FAT & LUSCIOUS, PART 4

Colorful Marinated Vegetables

5 Cups zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1 Cup carrots, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1/2 Cup thinly sliced onion, separated into rings
1/2 Cup coarsely chopped red pepper
1/4 Cup V-8 juice
1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon snipped fresh parsley
1 clove garlic, minced (or 1 teaspoon from a little jar of minced garlic)
1 teaspoon Splenda
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1/4 teaspoon salt

Steam the zucchini, carrots, onion and pepper until tender-crisp. Drain, put in pretty serving bowl. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over veggies. Toss to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least four hours, stirring occasionally.

Guaranteed to brighten up your holiday table!
