Our Citrus Herb Salt beckons you with a nose of rosemary and lavender, reminiscent of a warm evening walk along a path lined with rosemary and lavender bushes as the moon rises over the Italian countryside. On the palate there is a salty minerality followed closely by woodsy, herbal notes and bursts of lemon when biting into the dried lemon bits. This blend will have a stunning effect on the taste of your food and will enhance the flavor of beef, chicken, fish, vegetable, and egg dishes. To boost your flavors further, spread this salt blend onto your food using a spice grinder.

The Romans were the first to blend citrus juice with herbs and the salt that was important to their diet. As a matter of fact, salt was so important, it was part of the pay received by the Roman legionaries from which we derive the word “salary.” The Romans experimented with many salt combinations but the Citrus Herb blend was one of the most popular and the first to be mentioned in surviving Roman cookbooks where the author enjoins the reader to add it to a variety of dishes including pork and fish. The word “salad” also originates from “salt,” and began with the early Romans salting their leafy greens and vegetables. We’re confident you’ll enjoy this special salt blend in true Roman fashion!
