Lime Zest, Dried, Granulated, in a Spice Jar (1.76 oz.)

peel is used in dessert recipes calling for lime zest. Add to iced tea, hot tea,
marinades, vinaigrettes, and creamy salad dressings for a light, limey citrus
flavor. We add them to chicken burgers along with jalapeno, cumin and cilantro
for a spicy, citrus-infused sandwich.
