Ladolemeno (Greek Lemon and Olive Oil Sauce)

This simple and tasty lemon and olive oil sauce is traditionally served over cooked vegetables.

When I was growing up, this is what my mom served on all out cooked vegetables. It was years before I realized most of my friends ate their veggies with melted butter.
