Turkey with Lime Butter Sauce
When I’m in Florida, I buy Key limes for the butter sauce, but any fresh limes work just fine. If I'm using leftover turkey, I brown the meat a little so the sauce picks up the flavor. —Patricia Kile, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania

This was amazingly fast to put together. Way less than 30 minutes. Lime butter would be good on other meats/items as well. I left out the chives, as I didn't have any, and substituted dried dill.
