Cilantro Lime Rice

cilantro lime rice healthy

How many of you love a simple go-to side dish for dinner?  This cilantro lime rice is so fresh and pairs perfectly with seafood, chicken or steak.  We had it with tacos last week but I can see it going with this ever popular chili rubbed salmon with mango salsa or this spicy skirt steak.  I think the bright lime flavor tends to balance and compliment spicier entrees.

Also, I calculated Weight Watcher points for this so if you're on the program consider this your lucky day!  Servings: 6 // Serving Size 1/2 cup // 3 points per serving
