Lemon-Rosemary Salt

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.
