Raw, squeezed or added to recipes, lemons are not only beneficial to your health but they also taste good. Some people prefer their lemons sweeter while others enjoy the taste of lemon in the raw. One way to eat a lemon is to sprinkle it with salt, much like the delicacy of sprinkling salt on watermelon. The salt complements the lemon and adds another layer of tartness to the fruit. Salt and lemon are also combined for use in weight loss and detoxification drinks. Another way to consume salt and lemons is to use them while doing alcohol shots. The lemon and salt complement the alcohol.
