This salt substitute can be sprinkled on vegetables, ­salads, eggs—or anything else that you would normally salt.
As you combine the ingredients, crumble or chop them to the consistency that you want. Store extras in tightly covered jars in a dark place to preserve their flavor for as long as possible. For use at the table, keep the blends in salt shakers with large holes; blends made with whole spices may be kept in pepper mills.
