After all the veggies are chopped, it’s time to whip up the marinade. Whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, Italian seasoning, minced garlic and black pepper. Once the veggies and marinade are ready, grab a large bowl and place everything into it. Let the vegetables marinade for at least a few hours. Finally, you have the option of either roasting them over the grill or in the oven. On the grill, they’ll need about 15 to 20 minutes, and the oven will take 35 to 40 minutes. Regardless, we know your Marinated Veggies will be delicious!
