Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the green beans, and cook until tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain, and rinse under cold water until the green beans are cool. Place into a bowl along with the broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, tomatoes, and olives; set aside.
  2. Whisk together the vinegar, salt, pepper, monosodium glutamate, garlic salt, and dill in a bowl. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while continuing to whisk to create a dressing. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and stir to combine. Cover, and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

These vegetables were absolutely outstanding! However, I think the amount of dressing is WAY off. I doubled the amount of veggies, and even added julienned carrots and a can of corn. However, I kept the dressing amount the same (minus the garlic salt but adding 2 chopped garlic cloves), with one major change: instead of a cup and a half of olive oil, I used a half of a cup. If I were to have used that much oil I would have had to throw all of the vegetables away because they would have been DROWNED in oil. I gave it four stars because of this, but the vegetables I made were very much deserving of a five, and I will make them often for parties. I only blanched my beans for a minute and they were crisp yet slightly tender.

This had a great flavor and was easy to put together. I subbed cucumber and red pepper for broccoli and cauliflower, and Spike seasoning for MSG. I also used fresh dill and garlic, and halved the dressing, which I thought was plenty. The dressing would be good on a green salad, as well. This is a very forgiving recipe--use your favorite veggies or whatever you have on hand.

The flavor was great, but it turned out TOO SALTY. Next time I will omit the salt and maybe use garlic powder instead of garlic salt. The recipe is great for whatever fresh veggies you have around.
