This is a great, fresh summer side dish with sauteed zucchini, garlic, carrots, balsamic vinegar, and the bright taste of fresh lemon juice. It goes great with any meal.

I actually made this as a main dish for my daughter. I added in some basil and oregano and only used the juice of half a very large lemon. I also sprinkled some parm over it just before serving. My daughter liked this and said she would definitely eat it again but did say she would like a little less lemon juice next time. Thanks.

This recipe has it all. Great taste, low fat, easy to prepare, ingredients most cooks would have on hand, and colorful in appearance. You could easily substitute other vegetables. Thanks for a great recipe!
