Side dishes don’t have to be complicated to have tons of flavor. Sometimes all you need is 30 minutes and under 5 ingredients. That is just what you will get when you make Cesar Vegetable Medley, simply flavorful with no hassle.
I was making Spring Herb Salmon and was going to make just a simple vegetable medley. Well, at least that is what my meal plan said. But! The day I went to make it everything sounded good except for the vegetable medley. Now don’t get me wrong these veggies are great with just a little olive oil salt and pepper, however, I just wanted something zesty something with a little more tang… my taste buds would not settle.
I certainly didn’t want to go back to the store. Honestly the less I grocery shop the better! I looked at my spices and thought been there done that…nope nope nope. Looked in my fridge, hmmm I wonder… olive oil light Caesar dressing…maybe! So I did and it was the perfect fix for my tangy needing taste buds.
See sometimes you just gotta look around, take a risk, and use what you got. It was as simple as taking my chopped up veggies placing them on a greased baking sheet drizzle with the dressing and a little extra olive oil (better to be safe than sorry, no stuck on veggies here), toss, and bake. Simple, quick, and satisfying.
Since then I have made Caesar Vegetable Medley dozen of times especially when I just need a little zesty tang on my plate!
