A simple vinaigrette transforms boring veggies into a delicious side dish that is full of flavor.
Steam or boil the veggies individually until tender-crisp, then immediately place in ice water to stop the cooking process. Once cold, remove and pat dry. To make ahead of time, the veggies can be stored in the fridge at this point until you are ready to serve.
