Tasty Tips

Substitute a Meyer lemon for the standard lemon. Meyer lemons are small, fragrant, floral lemons with golden skin that taste like a combination of tangerines and lemons. They are available in the produce section of most well-stocked grocery stores.

Sprinkle top with chopped basil, chives or Italian parsley for a pop of color and freshness.
