Lime-Sugar Dipping Salt

Lime-Sugar Dipping Salt

A simple combination of sugar, salt and grated lime zest, this innovative sweet and savory citrus mix is excellent sprinkled on pork chops, chicken or salmon before roasting, or used as a seasoning for raw vegetables or corn on the cob. It’s also wonderful tossed with a little chile powder for added heat. To serve, place in a bowl or ramekin and serve with a demitasse or other small spoon for sprinkling. Or arrange vegetables on a platter and sprinkle with lime salt before serving.
