Make this summer roasted vegetable medley with whatever veggies are available from your garden or the farmers market. So fresh and delicious!
Up today is a fresh and delicious roasted vegetable medley that is the perfect side dish for any meal. I’ve been making a version of this for a long time, but I recently found an old clipping in my recipe box for Peacock Vegetables. I clipped the recipe from Midwest Living Magazine back in August of 2000. I love that it calls for lemon juice in addition to the olive oil. Adding something acidic brightens the taste and adds a bit of zing. The name of the recipe is in honor of the colorful ingredients…and the more colors, the better!

The measurements listed in the recipe card are just guidelines. You can make as much or as little of this roasted vegetable medley as you need or want. My favorite way to eat this is to make sure that a piece of onion is included in every bite. The red onion adds such a wonderful taste…and brightens the taste of the other vegetables.
