Lime Carrots

Perk up everyday carrots with a twist of lime. They're great with everything from fish to chicken and pair perfectly with pork, too. —Steve Foy, Kirkwood, Missouri

    Did not care for this at all. Too buttery and sweet, not enough of the other flavors. Such a waste of carrots.

    My family loves this carrot recipe- usually I struggle to get the kids to eat veggies but this recipe is a sure thing to get them to eat without the fuss!

    We did not care for these. They might be better without the dill weed.
