”This quick stir-fry is so colorful and tasty,” reports Linda Murray of Allenstown, New Hampshire. TIP: “Vary the recipe by substituting chicken or other vegetables you have on hand,” Linda suggests. “The quickest version uses prepared veggies from our grocery store's salad bar.”—Linda Murray, Allenstown, New Hampshire

"Made it with chicken and whatever veggies I had on hand and homemade plum sauce. It was too sweet for my taste; sweeter than teriyaki stir-fry."
