My family could eat fresh spinach with olive oil and garlic every night, but it's nice to switch it up once in awhile. Thanks for the recipe:)

Sorry but this just didn't do it for me or my family. The dill and lemon flavors were way too overpowering and I'd didn't even use 1/4 c let alone a 1/2c of dill that it calls for. I only used one lemon as well. I really wanted to like this one but unfortunately I had to throw it out.

This is a great summer recipe. I made this several times while the dill in my yard was running rampant (hardly put a dent in the dill though). I plan to serve it during Passover this year (the recipe does comply with Sephardic dietary restrictions).

This is one of my most favorite dishes... I do change it up a bit and add minced garlic, feta crumbles and a top of plain lowfat yogurt. LOVE IT!

An easy, elegant dish for any occasion. Although, the garbanzo beans should be omitted for the Passover seder meal due to dietary law. (At least that is what my Jewish in-laws told me.) Could also substitute kale in this recipe. It was a big hit at Passover. Thanks!

Clever way to mix up the usual sautéed spinach. I had everything except the dill on hand so I went without it and added a pinch of cumin. Fast and easy to make. Thanks Sara, I will make this again.

This was excellent! Nice tart lemon flavor. I looooved the dill - I never would have thought to use fresh dill that way. I used half collard greens, steamed, and half spinach to give it a bit of variety in flavor.
