Salt Substitute

 Salt Substitute
Myrta Sweet of Wildwood, Florida keeps this nicely flavored blend in a salt shaker on the back of her stove. "I use a teaspoon of it in almost everything I cook, from meat loaf to stew," Myrta comments. It's perfect for people on restricted diets as well as those who are simply cutting back on salt.
