Pretty good

My teenager said it reminded her of lemon tea.  If I made it again I'd probably add some minced garlic.

Light and satisfying as a side to the Eggplant & Zucchini Parmesean. Recipe calls for 1.5 TBSP of olive oil, by accident, I did 2 TBSP and it tasted oily. Added extra lemon juice to balance it out which worked great.
