A question about a recipe: Avocado with Pomegranate Molasses, Tomatoes, Citrus, and Basil

8584ab34 b7d5 4ffd 9b49 4ca38a2b75ca  2014 0708 avocado tomato and citrus salad 005

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.
