I discovered that finger limes taste really great with aged sharp cheddar cheese so I made a light salad with cheddar cheese and flavors that work well with each other. The finger limes are like a combination of caviar and pop rocks with a lime kind of flavor. This salad really is kind of like fireworks in your mouth and happens to be Forking tasty.
Ingredients for two servings
2 cups zucchini cut in noodle strings
1/4 cup scallions chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
3 radishes shredded
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove – minced
1 small lemon juiced
2 teaspoons honey
fresh ground sea salt to taste
fresh ground black pepper to taste
2 Tablespoons (Heaping) aged sharp cheddar cheese – shredded
4 finger limes
In a large bowl combine the zucchini, scallions, cilantro and radishes and set to side. In a small bowl combine extra virgin olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, salt, pepper, honey and mix well. and pour it over the vegetables in the large bowl. Mix well. Place in your two individual bowls. Top each bowl with cheddar cheese and squeeze out two finger limes for each serving.
It’s a very special salad. Light, tasty and interesting.
