Recipe: Mixed Veggie Side

I'm always on the lookout for quick and easy vegetable side dish recipes. I get bored eating the same old thing, but Pat likes his red meat so I need to be creative with the sides. Here's a quick veggie stir fry that takes minutes and adds both a burst of colour and flavour to your plate.
Mixed Veggie Side

Ingredients:

2 carrots (1 if it's particularly big)
1 red pepper
1 small zucchini
1 yellow summer squash, if available
1/4 cup Italian salad dressing

Methods:

1. Slice the veggies into matchsticks.

2. Fry on medium-low in a bit of oil. Start with the carrots & peppers, then add the zucchini & squash after 3 minutes. Fry for 3 more minutes.

3. Add the salad dressing & turn down the heat to low. Warm for a few more minutes, until the veggies are softened. Enjoy!
