Sauteed Spring Vegetables Recipe

Sauteed Spring Vegetables Recipe

Yellow squash, green asparagus and red onion help usher in the flavors of springtime. For an Asian flavor twist, substitute soy sauce for the balsamic vinegar (adjusting the salt due to the soy sauce). Use red pepper flakes for a little added heat. —Billy Hensley, Mount Carmel, Tennessee

MY REVIEW

"We absolutely love this dish. We have tried the balsamic vinegar and the soy sauce. The soy sauce is okay but the balsamic vinegar is superb. I am making it again now. My only problem is that I cry so much cutting up the onion. I know, my problem... Anyway, a mandolin helps in cutting up the vegetables more quickly. Thank you so much for this recipe."
