Vegetables a la Grecque

1/4 cup grapeseed oil
1 yellow squash, diced
1 zucchini, diced
1 red onion, diced
15 button mushrooms, cut in quarters
2 cups cauliflower florets, blanched
1 cup broccoli florets blanched
1 cup celery, cut into 1-inch slices
1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup light olive oil
1 teaspoon red chili flakes
2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon leaves
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup chopped scallions


In a large stainless steel bowl, mix the grapeseed oil and all of the vegetables and olives together. In a glass bowl combine the lemon juice, light olive oil, chili flakes, tarragon, rice wine vinegar, and salt and pepper, to taste. Combine the dressing with the vegetables and refrigerate for 4 hours, allowing the flavors to meld. When ready to serve, transfer the vegetables to a serving bowl and garnish with scallions. Cook's Note: Blanching is a form of cooking by which dropping raw vegetables into boiling salted water for 3 to 5 minutes and then immediately transferring to a bowl of iced water. When "shocking" with ice water, it instantly stops the cooking process.
