Recipe for Zucchini Lime Bars


Still have zucchini in the garden and need some new ways to use it up? Zucchini Lime Bars have a buttery shortbread crust with a decadent lime filling. The green flecks are zucchini, but no one will know; they will just think they are lime zest. The zucchini in the filling adds body and a few nutrients. Although these luscious bars wouldn’t be considered health food by any stretch of the imagination, my philosophy is that even a little added nutrition is a step in the right direction, and certainly better than none.

Take these bars to the next backyard barbecue or picnic; everyone will be shocked when you tell them (after the bars have been eaten, of course) that they contain zucchini. These will remind you of the ever-popular lemon bars, but with the trendy flavor of lime. Yum!
