Roasting transforms this veggie into a delectable snack so mellow--delicious that your family will gobble it up like popcorn. It's great as a side dish, too. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
"I constantly crave the wholesome goodness of fresh garden vegetables, so I fix this quick and delicious dish as often as possible," writes field editor Ruth Ann Stelfox of Raymond, Alberta. "It's wonderful to make on camping trips."
"This combination of colorful vegetable is so good when baked in the oven," assures Margaret Allen of Abingdon, Virginia. "They make a lovely presentation when threaded on skewers before roasting, too," she notes.
"Living in the Midwest, we anticipate spring treats like fresh asparagus all winter long," affirms Mickey Kelly, Burnsville, Minnesota. "Our three small children can't help but snitch a taste when this dish is chilling in the fridge. I use the vinaigrette dressing on salads, sliced tomatoes and other steamed vegetables as well."
I've had to find some great recipes to use all the harvest our large garden produces every year, including this colorful combination. It's loaded with crunch and well-seasoned flavor. —Andrea Sheatz, Knox, Pennsylvania
This versatile recipe goes well with grilled meats or sliced up and tossed with pasta. Thanks to the Cajun seasoning, it gets more attention than an ordinary side dish.—Greg Fontenot, The Woodlands, Texas
