This lime crema recipe is quick and zesty, with a big citrus flavor! Use it for dolloping tacos, bowl meals, and more.

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice, plus the zest of 1/2 lime
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced or grated
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Stir all ingredients together in a small bowl. Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
