I think this came from Midwest Living magazine. I haven't tried--sounds good.

Absolutely delicious, but then I'm a nut for pistachios! I pretty much followed your recipe, although, when it came to including the lime peel, I wasn't sure if you actually meant the PEEL of the lime or the ZEST of the lime, & I did use the fine outer layer (the ZEST), nicely minced! The 'slices' had great flavor & were deliciously satisfying! A great recipe to keep! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
