Marinated Vegetables

"CAN YOU BELIEVE that a blend of vinegar and garlic can be strong but subtle, too? That's the best way to describe this recipe. "I love garlic, so I use a lot of it in this recipe. Luckily, my family likes it, too! And just like my aunt, who had an extensive vegetable/herb garden, we use quite a few of our own homegrown vegetables for this medley. For some reason, they just make this dish taste so much better."
