Lemon-Rosemary Salt

Yield 2 tablespoons (serving size: 1 teaspoon)
One teaspoon of this herb-enhanced salt has 600 milligrams less sodium than a teaspoon of kosher salt. So if you're seasoning a dish serving four with 1 teaspoon of this blend, for example, you shave 150 milligrams of sodium per serving. Vary the rinds and herbs used; try grated orange rind and fresh thyme or grated lime rind and cilantro for other combinations.

Ingredients

  • 8 teaspoons grated lemon rind (about 2 large lemons)
  • 4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
