In a small saucepan (over medium heat), combine eggs, egg yolks, and sugar. Whisk these together well.
Once mixed, whisk in the lemon juice, lemon zest, and the salt.
Add butter to the pan and cook, whisking constantly, until butter has melted and the curd has thickened. This will take approx. 3-4 minutes. DO NOT LET THE MIXTURE BOIL! Just keep on whisking.
Once curd has thickened, remove pan from heat and let the curd cool to room temperature. While curd is cooling, give it a good stir every few minutes. Once lemon curd has cooled to room temp, cover the pan with plastic wrap and put it in refrigerator. The lemon curd will need to be well chilled prior to serving (at least 3-4 hours).
