  • 3 egg whites
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¾ cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of lime zest


  • Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat egg whites and salt on medium-high speed until foamy, about 1 minute. With mixer running, gradually add sugar in 2 additions beating for 3 minutes between each addition. Beat until firm peaks form, about 2 minutes longer.
  • With a spatula fold in the lime zest. Drop about 3 tablespoons of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Rotate the pan and bake for another 30 minutes. Turn off the oven and allow the meringues to cool completely while still in the oven, about 2 hours.
