veggies with spiced salt

veggies with spiced salt
3 tbs kosher salt
1 tsp cayenne
¼ tsp black pepper
grape tomatoes
new radishes
cucumber spears

Stir together salt with cayenne and pepper until well mixed. Serve in a condiment dish to sprinkle or scantily dip the fresh veggies.

lemon salt
¼ cup kosher salt
zest of 3-4 lemons

Pulse together in a clean coffee grinder that is only used for spices. Use to sprinkle over chicken or fish.

Trivial Pursuits: The taste buds of chefs become desensitized after years of service. As a result, they tend to add more salt to their own servings than other people might.
