In my opinion: We had a cookout and Pampered Chef party combined. This was one of the recipes we demonstrated. We doubled it but it made soooo much that I was eating the leftovers for days. I usually don't eat leftovers so that tells you that this was an amazing recipe (and we didn't have any lemon juice). You could even put the veggies in a tortilla. This has become my new favorite grilling side.
