Flavored Salts
Create by Kathy Gunst
This is delicious on salads, pasta and grilled lamb chops. Rub it lightly on a leg of lamb before roasting or use it to season a salad of tomatoes, onion and goat cheese. Stir a generous pinch into a cup of olive oil and serve as a dipping sauce. It's also terrific on corn on the cob, hard-boiled eggs, egg salad or even a simple fried egg. The salt will keep for about two months when sealed and stored in a cool, dry place.
