Recipe Review — Avocado Lime Tart

We all have that one food that kicks our salivary glands into overdrive.  For me, it is Key Lime Pie!!  Yummmmm.  For Christmas, my sister in law bought me the cook book “Run Fast, Cook Fast, Eat Slow” by Shalane Flanagan and Chef Elyse Kopecky.

This book is FILLED with a ton of delicious recipes, but there was one that caught my eye.  Avocado Lime Tarts.  Cue those salivary glands!  I immediately opened up my shopping list on my phone and added all the necessary ingredients I did not already have at home.

I was so excited to try these tarts that I did not hesitate on getting in the car and heading to the store!  The ingredients are super simple and healthy.  Combine that with a straightforward and an easy to follow recipe and we have a win!

Let me tell you, these little tarts did NOT disappoint!  Do yourself a favor, write down these ingredients and head to the store now.  We know how finicky avocados can be when it comes to getting ripe!

Bon Appetite!
