 Gingered Lime Carrots
The produce manager at my grocery store suggested this memorable mixture of lightly sweet carrots, zippy ginger and tart lime. It;s easy to fall in love with this recipe, which now has permanent place among my favorites. My husband and I especially enjoy it with poultry or fish.
