An ongoing argument in our family whether the lemon should be peeled before dicing or not. Too much rind for my tastes but not my husband's. Try it both ways and decide for yourself.

This recipe came from a small restaurant in Napa, CA, called Pilar. The chef called us back within 15 minutes of our inquiry and, though we were both on the phone, we have differing versions as to what we heard about the lemon. We were sorry to hear that Pilar has closed permanently--it was a great little restaurant.
