We just got back from a week on the beach. My friend made some variation of this every night. It is sooooo easy and tastes great, a perfect dish for these hot summer days. You can use any vegetables you like, and the marinade can be used over again for up to a week. Splenda can also be used rather than sugar if you want to eat light.
