I never measure it but I will guestimate.

5 tbsp Red wine vinegar
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
4 tbsp olive oil
splash of wine (okay to open a bottle)
1/2 tsp chopped rosemary
1/2 tsp chili flakes
1 clove minced garlic
1 small bulb minced shallot
1/2 tsp prepared mustard
1/2 tsp fresh thyme
salt and pepper

I have also used dried rosemary,thyme and garlic powder when I don't have fresh.

Thanks 4meandthem. It's copied and pasted. It will make an excellent starting point.

No way I could confine it to just three. Even three groups would be hard. And it would varry by season.

Okra and zucchini are two that I DON'T like. Also don't like veggies that are bitter to begin with.

I have yet to figure out why someone would work all week, collect their paycheck and then go out and spend it on bitter or sour food. Why?

You'd rather end with them? Or not consume them at all?

I certainly agree with you about bitter food. Yuck!

I'm not a big fan of zucchini, but earlier this week I bought some roasted vegis at the local Greek supermarket's deli. There was zucchini and it was good! Surprise, surprise.

I'm going to julienne some zucchini, red bell peppers and onions, then lightly sauté them with some wasabi ginger sauce, serve in a warmed flour tortilla with cooked cod chunks. Asian Burritos!

My first husband liked zucchini. So I would peel it, slice and batter it, then fry. I could eat it that way. I think it is the peel that I don't like. Just like cucumbers. Peel them please. I don't like eating wax.

Do you get English cucumbers where you live? The are long and unwaxed and the seeds are tiny. Really, nice cucumbers. The skins are not as tough as the other kind of cukes, even when they aren't waxed.
