Who did the lemon rob the bank with? His partner in lime! Lemons and limes are both delicious citrus fruits, but did you know that limes are a better choice when it comes to savory dishes? Limes are less sweet than lemons, with a more sour or bitter taste. Nutritionally, lemons and limes are essentially identical. They are both high in vitamin C, low in calories, and fat-free.
When selecting limes at the grocery store, choose limes that are firm with a deep green, smooth, shiny skin. They will keep in your refrigerator for 6-8 weeks.
Use limes to season or flavor recipes in a healthy way. Use them for drinks, Mexican dishes, to marinate seafood, and more! Check out the top ten ways to Enjoy Limes from fruitsandveggies.org.
One of my favorite ways to use limes is homemade Cilantro Lime Dressing.
Keep a container in the refrigerator to use as a dressing on salad, to season brown rice, or drizzled on top of chicken wrapped in a tortilla. Click the links below for more delicious lime recipes.
