This salad is wonderful as it ticks all the boxes- seasonal, delicious, and extremely good for you/nourishing. You can use ground cumin in this, but with a little more effort, toast your own cumin and take it (and your tastebuds) to a whole new level. I usually toast them in a skillet of sorts, then they can be ground with the salt in a mortar and pestle (preferred) or a clean coffee grinder. Either way, it will be notable and enjoyed.
A combination of Linzer Tart dough with Key Lime Pie ingredients. I created this for the Fine Cooking contest, but people loved it so much that it has been added as another mandatory part of the Christmas tray.
