“I found this in a cooking magazine and made it as instructed. I've since changed a few of the ingredient amounts to give it less of a vinegar taste and add some sweetness. Hopefully it works! I will update next time I make it if I decide to change anything else.”

  1. Cook vegetables according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute onion in oil until tender.
