lemon olive and caper sauce for vegetables


this all-purpose sauce for dressing cooked vegetables provides a strong enough flavor to stand up to strong-flavored vegetables such as broccoli. it goes well with almost any green vegetable. it is a good substitute for cheese sauce as it is much lower in calories, and provides a somewhat salty-tart flavor with addition of any salt. preparation could not be easier.. this comes from the healthy plate section of the louisville courier-journal.
