Hungry Girl's Merry Marinated Vegetables

“I got this recipe from the Hungry Girl website. I didn't see where anyone else had posted. I'm posting it as they have it written, but I've subbed green pepper for the red pepper and I usually add a small summer squash as well. The time includes 24 hours for the vegetables to marinate. You can eat them before the 24 hours, but they are much better if you wait. They are even better after two days. According the website, the nutritional value is: 1/5th recipe: 57 calories, 1g fat, 7mg sodium, 14g carbs, 1.5g fiber, 10g sugars, 1.5g protein = 1 Point.”
