I’ve heard of meyer lemons but until last Friday, never tried one, at least not that I can remember. Not long ago, I saw a simple salad dressing that called for meyer lemons, olive oil and garlic. Sure enough, I found meyer lemons at a market in Manhattan. I haven’t made the dressing yet, but used it in another dressing, and on an avocado. They are sweeter than regular lemons, and while they weren’t cheap (fifty cents a pop), they sure are lovely.
They are easy to find out in Los Angeles–check out 100 things to do with a meyer lemon in the L.A. Times.
