Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with baking parchment and set aside.
Beat egg whites and salt in small bowl at high electric-mixer speed until frothy. With mixer still at high speed, add sugar gradually and continue beating until meringue peaks stiffly (about 4 minutes). Beat in vanilla, then by hand fold in lemon zest.
