Transfer to bowl and place in large bowl of ice water to chill, stirring frequently, for 10 to 15 minutes or until cold and slightly thickened. Whip cream, set aside. In large bowl, beat egg whites with salt until stiff peaks form. Whisk about one-quarter of the beaten egg whites into slamon mixture; fold into remaining whites along with whipped cream.
