According to Pok Pok’s Andy Ricker (who uses plenty of limes in his Thai cooking, so he is a trustworthy source), the lime shortage that rocked our citrus-loving country is almost over. “Limes down to $45/cs in NYC. Still expensive compared to normal, but cheap compared to $120/cs a few weeks ago,” he tweeted. In response to a tweet from F&W editor-in-chief, Dana Cowin, he also noted that the quality of limes is on the rise. That means it’s time to celebrate with these 10 tart, limey dishes.
