This is a wonderful recipe for marinated vegetables, one that you can enjoy all year round.
Heating the marinade ingredients together causes two things - it enables them to "meld" together better as the sugar melts and the hot dressing actually softens the raw vegetables a bit.
Meanwhile, in a saucepan, heat the vinegar and seasonings together. Add oil and pour over the vegetables. Mix well then let it cool slightly. Transfer mixture to a large non metallic covered bowl.
Refrigerate for several hours before serving, ideally for 24 hours.
