It’s hard to beat salt as a flavor enhancer. Instead of elaborate seasoning tonight, how about something that shines with the simple addition of this simplest ingredient?


Food Ideas

Love to Cook: Argentine salt-roasted chicken [or, if you’ve got a day or two to prepare, salt cod – more likely to be available because it’s Lent]; fresh green salad with olive oil, lemon juice and salt

Weeknight Reality: Poached cod over wilted greens with salt & vinegar roasted potatoes

Need a Miracle: Salt and pepper steak, spinach salad, and salted caramel gelato for dessert

Parting Thought

I shivered in those
when I heard
the voice
the salt
in the desert.
