I have a question about the recipe "Avocado with Pomegranate Molasses, Tomatoes, Citrus, and Basil" from Helenthenanny. Live on a citrus ranch but have never heard of pink variegated lemons. Are regular lemons ok with this recipe?

They are vanishingly rare and scary expensive, so I'm going to say 'yes.' They're a little less acidic than regular lemons, though, so if you can get Meyer lemons, that might be a better substitution. If not, I wouldn't worry about it.

Thanks Diana--I have a meyer lemon tree so that is easy and makes sense.

Meyer Lemons have less acid. Use half orange juice and regular lemon juice.
