“This is a twist on a simple key-lime pie recipe, I invented it for a family reunion, about one hour ago. One advantage it has over the traditional recipe is that it is naturally greenish, not yellow. The other advantage is that it is very, very tasty. You can dress this up any way you would like, and you may use any crust you wish. I just didn't feel like a store-bought crust today.”
