Tuesday Recipe: Tangerines with Lime Essence

Summer are here! Grilling and backyard parties are on! You need a quick, nutritious dessert that doesn't leave you feeling heavy. Sunday's newspaper probably has a coupon for Cuties or Halo Oranges. Or is it Tangerines? Or is it Clementines? Or is it Mandarines?

There really is a difference. Basically, it comes right down to the harvest season, being seedless and easy-to-peel for young eaters. These little sweeties ward off the munchies and are a source of fiber and vitamin C.
