When you think of a warm day, what flavors come to mind? Maybe some BBQ flavors like hamburgers, hot dogs and grilled veggies. For dessert, I always love a good citrus dessert that is both refreshing and sweet! Key Lime is the best flavor for summer desserts and can be served up in so many ways. From a basic fruit salad with a little extra flavor to your classic key lime pie, these recipes are simple and refreshing – perfect for summer days!
