Perfect, lovely, devilishly delicious. I love the sweetness of the honey with the tartness of the lime. (The zest really makes the dressing come alive!) I wasn't sure whether to serve it hot or cold- so I opted for cold.... OMG, delicious!!!!! Thanks so much for an incredible way to jazz up a regular ol' favorite vegetable. Yum!
