Forced lime leaf salad

Resurrecting this Facebook post from two years ago as I just trimmed my lime trees for early spring lime leaf salad. Here’s what I wrote two years ago:

“When I was in Denmark a few weeks ago, I met a guy who forces lime / lind leaves, probably the native tree in Europe with the best tasting leaves! What a good idea…yet another way of getting off-season greens! Forcing tree twigs into growth inside is often done in winter anyway to brighten up our homes…so why not eat them too…”
