This is from Beat This, by Ann Hodgman. That one and Beat That, also by her, are real gems if you ever get the chance to peruse them. She says to get really tart lemon squares, use limes. I have, and these are delicious. The citrus salt is optional, but really makes you pucker. :) She says you can find it in Middle Eastern markets, but you may be able to get it these days in a well stocked grocery store.
