Sliced Fruit with Sugared Lime Zest

Source: Martha Stewart Living, October 2007


  • 2 limes
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Granny Smith apple
  • 1 mango
  • 1 medium papaya


  1. Grate zest from limes. Squeeze 2 teaspoons juice from one of the zested limes into a bowl. Process lime zest, sugar, and salt in a food processor until zest is coarsely ground.

  2. Core apple, then cut in half and slice thinly. Add to lime juice, and toss. Peel mango; cut flesh away from pit, and slice thinly. Halve papaya, remove seeds, and slice thinly.

  3. Arrange apple, mango, and papaya on a serving platter or plates. Sprinkle with some of the sugared lime zest, and serve remaining zest mixture on the side.
