      This was great. I used leftover veggies that had been prepped for dipping (pulled out the cukes). I used the juice of the zested lemon so it wouldn't go to waste. It was delicious!! A great dish. Thanks!

      I made this for a vegetarian guest and it was a big hit. It was also very easy to make, which was important because I never made a vegetable dish before. Everyone loved it.
