As you know, I have a curd obsession. I seem to have subconciously convinced myself to taste (and make) every flavor of curd.
The few days I was home before moving down South I helped my mom start some lemon lime curd bars. I made this bright green lime curd using Nutmeg Nanny‘s recipe.
This stuff is so good. I think it’s better than lemon curd. I liked it so much I wanted to make some for myself. But I knew that having a jar of curd sitting around is dangerous. It would be gone in a few hours, maximum.
To provide myself an easier way of eating the curd, with out eating it straight from the jar I made a tart. Using graham crackers, a little sugar, and an egg white I made a slightly salty and crunchy crust to fill with the curd and top with something else delicious. But, instead of topping it with whipped cream and more sugar, I went the au naturale route with organic strawberries.
I had the idea to top it with strawberries from strawberry lemonade. I figured if strawberries and lemons tasted delicious together, strawberries and lime was a no brainer.
This tart is amazing. The strawberries and lime curd pair perfectly, and the slightly salty crust provides the perfect balance to the tart curd.
Whipped cream is unnecessary, but so delicious with the curd!
