    Cilantro Lime Rice

    Cilantro Lime Rice

    I was going to call this Green Rice because while this version uses cilantro, it is just as green and delicious when made with parsley, which might be more enticing for some of you. The lime is not just a small addition. It really makes the dish, so be sure to use fresh lime juice for best results.

    We think papaya is an underutilized fruit, and while we love them in fruit salad, they are just as versatile in the savory kitchen, like this condiment that combines papaya, cilantro, scallions, lime juice, and minced jalapeño. A little salt and you’re done. Grab the chips, or ladle over grilled chicken, pork, or fish.

    This dessert dip is a little sweet and a little tart, made by swirling homemade lime curd into what is essentially a cheesecake batter made with cream cheese. Choose your dippers such as fresh fruit, pieces of pound cake, or even pretzel rods.
