I can’t claim this recipe as my own. My mother-in-law has made this for years, and I have always loved it. It always reminds me of summer and fresh garden vegetables.

I only changed out the sugar for a zero calorie all natural sugar, erythritol. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do.

Ingredients for Tangy Marinated Vegetable Recipe

  • Cucumbers
  • Grape Tomatoes
  • Red Onions
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Granulated Erythritol (Swerve)
  • Ground Mustard
  • White Vinegar
  • Water

Step One: Cutting Vegetables

Cutting the vegetables is the most difficult part of this whole recipe. I like to use my chef knife to cut the cucumbers and onions thin, but leave the grape tomatoes whole.

Note: Onions are slightly higher in carbs, but we’re only using a small amount, and they really add flavor to the dish. Leave them out, if the carb-count really bothers you.

Step Two: Measuring and Mixing the Marinade

In small bowl or large measuring cup mix the seasoning and liquids.

Step Three: Marinate Veggies

Put veggies in a shallow pan like a Pyrex casserole dish, and pour the marinade over. Cover and let marinate if refridgerator for 1 hour.

Perfect Side or Snack

These vegetables are the perfect snack to get you ready for spring. They go very well as a side dish for Chicken Salad. You could also change this recipe up by adding different vegetables. If you do please let me know what you end up with.
