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

"Sure great with the balsamic but have a question about the marinade do you discard or cook with the vegetables? Thanks really like the veggie medleys."

"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."

"We really enjoy this recipe. It is simple and very tastey. We will be using it as a side dish often this summer (especially when the garden starts coming in)."
