Foods That Go Together

Below is a list of different foods that go together with limes!


Pomegranates pair great with limes. The sweet taste mixed with the acidic liquid of the limes will amp up its flavor.


Unlike lemons, which don’t pair well with mint, limes do! They both contain menthol, which has cooling properties. This means they complement each other because limes are sour while mint is sweet. This is a delicious combination that makes it easier to consume the two together. It is common to find them paired in drinks. 


Like the first two on our list, lychee and lime are another great drink pairing. Limes and other fruits are often used in drinks. This combination of flavors causes a wonderful balance in either alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks.


When it comes to cooking with lime, marinating chicken in limes and lemons is often a sure way to get delicious flavors added to your next meal. 


Adding lime juice to fresh oysters can help with their fishiness. Restaurants often serve limes with oysters, and they can be squeezed on top of them to enjoy!


There are many different crab dishes that use limes as one of the main ingredients. From its juice to the zests, tanginess can bring your crab dish even more to life. 


Let’s not forget key lime pies! The filling for the pie can be made from key limes, sugar, eggs, cream, butter, vanilla extract, and salt. It’s a classic! Not to mention this flavoring can be used in key lime cookies too. Lime juice can be used in healthy juices, smoothies, milkshakes, alcoholic beverages, and more:

  • Margaritas
  • Vinaigrettes
  • Salad dressings
  • Sauces
