Substitute with a dash of herbs.
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.
