This was a great side dish. Served it with Lasagna Rolls and Cheddar Garlic Bread Sticks. Great meal.

This is such a lovely and elegant recipe! It's definitely going to be a staple in our house. The sugar adds just the right amount of sweetness and is nicely offset by the lemon juice. I used coarsely chopped whole almonds and the whole dish was perfect!
