Lemon-Dilled Vegetables

Robyn Bruce


I came across this recipe about 20 years ago. It's one of my favorites. The dill sauce is so good and just adds that extra "something". I serve the sauce in a little bowl and spoon, and then people can spoon however much they personally would like to have over their vegetables. This is a great recipe to serve any time, but it's kind of impressive, also, to serve to guests or a date night for that special someone. If you're having guests, you can easily double the recipe.
