Mmmmmm...creamy,this is the first thing I ever made, I'm a college student and I was quite impressed with myself. I think the lime makes a really good touch. The only problem I had was with cooking the olive oil - apparently this isn't good for you, it makes free radicals - which I will not explain, but it is bad for your immune system. Also - I couldn't figure out how to zest the lime, i just added the juice.I'm very pleased with this recipe. Thanks!!!
