Fennel and Lime Crema


Fennel and Lime Crema

This is one of the quickest recipes that I have come up with.

It was just as quick to come up with it, as it was quick to make it.

It was sheer craving: I imagined it to accompany the Potato, Sweet Potato and Granny Smith Latkes, but you can use it to complement so many other things.

It just mixes the already salty and tangy Mexican Cream with the crunchy chopped fennel bulb, fragrant fennel fronds, fresh-squeezed lime juice and salt.

Hey: You may also use it as a vegetable dip, why not?

  1. What is Mexican style cream (pardon my ignorance!); my husband and I are intrigued by this recipe but do not know if heavy whipping cream is equivalent or if we need to try to find something else. So happy to have visited your web site!
