Our co-founder, Myra Goodman, uses the Meyer lemons growing in her backyard as the main ingredient for her family's everyday "house dressing," which she serves on any type of salad green. Because Meyers are a little sweeter than regular lemons, they make an especially delicious dressing, but regular lemons will be good, too. The fresh-squeezed juice from either variety turns a basic vinaigrette into one that sparkles with bright flavors.
