Limes are one of my favorites. I love fresh-squeezed lime juice in my water and I love making homemade, simple Honey-Lime Garlic Chicken. I was so excited to find all these amazing recipes with lime. From breakfast to beverages to main dishes with salmon, pork and chicken to desserts – there is something for everyone! Most of these recipes don’t make lime the “star” of the dish, but they do highlight the flavor. Enjoy!

You can use limes in just about any type of recipe you can think of - from breakfast to beverages and main dishes to desserts. Check out the amazing ones I found! :: www.homeschoolgiveaways.com
