A low salt “sprinkle” for those of you cutting back on salt…

A low salt "sprinkle" for those of you cutting back on salt...This seasoning is so ridiculously simple that it hardly warrants a recipe but it’s really a killer concept that you should know if you don’t already.

This is a seasoning mix designed to help you intake less salt.

First, let me say that I have never, ever in my life been concerned about salt. Eating a diet of whole foods certainly helps — it’s the beer battered fish or Wendy’s hamburgers that might as well be “salt licks.” Home cooks seldom use as much salt as food manufacturers do.

Even so, there may come a time when even home cooks need to watch it. (*sniffle*) I mentioned my high blood pressure problem, a problem which is improving with a lot of little changes like this one.

Here is a mixture of sesame seed and salt that you sprinkle on your food in place of salt and it really does add a lot of flavor to pretty much any dish and it reduces that feeling that your meal is, somehow, unsalted. The sesame seeds also bring a very nice crunch. It’s a texture I like on food. If you also like the texture and if you’re cutting back on added salt too, then this is the recipe you’ve been waiting for.

Sesame Salt Ingredients

  • 1 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
