A Healthy Tasty Salt Substitute

dsc_0979

Eating a high sodium diet will create problems such as high blood pressure, heart problems, kidney failure, thyroid problems, strokes and the list goes on.  Food naturally has salt in it and to add even more amounts to preserve it and cure it is unhealthy. People say sugar is the enemy but salt is just as deadly.  Salt is hidden in processed foods and packaging is not always correct because there is salt in the product naturally and the packaging label doesn’t always identify that. People should try to do without salt and use salt substitutes, my tasty salt substitute sprinkle has iodine in it from seaweed, it has texture from sesame seeds and a little spice from cayenne pepper, unlike the supermarket brands that in my opinion taste awful with all the dried lemon they put in. You can use this for cooking vegetables or a rub for meats.

Tasty Salt Substitute

1 tsp dried garlic or garlic powder

1 tsp roasted sesame seeds black or white

1 tsp grounded dried seaweed( wakame, nori,kelp)

1/4 tsp dried cayenne pepper or chili flakes

1/2 tsp dried paprika

1/4 tsp grounded black peppercorns

This is a very easy salad dressing without all the preservatives and chemicals, it’s simple and tastes great, why pay so much more for salad dressing when you probably  have the ingredients in your pantry to make it. It’s so much healthier than buying it in the store because you can control the amount of salt and sugar in it.

Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

3 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar

1 tbsp Dijon Mustard or Yellow Mustard

2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil ( or Flavored Olive Oil)

Directions:

Put all ingredients in a large bowl and whisk until the dressing is emulsified, it should be slightly thick by adding the mustard. You can add a bit of salt and pepper if you wish but the dressing doesn’t need it as the mustard and vinegar have sweetness and saltiness.

Servings 2-3
