This is one of the tastiest side dishes ever! It was so simple to make and tasted to divine. This will definitely be a side dish that will be made time and time because it dresses up a simple meal so well. The only thing that I'm still stumped about is where the "lemon" part comes into play. I think she forgot to add it. I mean really, I could of just zested half a lemon or squeezed a little bit of lemon juice into it, but I loved it without the lemon.
