Try this sprinkled on freshly sliced heirloom tomatoes for a different layer of flavor. This isn’t ordinary salt; we suggest adding a pinch right before serving to add concentrated flavor and a crunchy, briny taste of the sea. Try adding this to your favorite dry rub or marinade to bring a new flavor to your grilled meats and vegetables. Add a sprinkle of this salt to your favorite Greek salad to highlight olives such as the Herbed Greek Chicken Salad.
8 ounces pitted kalamata olives
5 teaspoons Maldon sea salt flakes, divided
