Salt-Pressed Grilled Cubanos

Salt-Pressed Grilled Cubanos 0

Cubanos are usually encased in foil prior to grilling and pressing— it helps to keep the edges from crumbling and falling away. But when you’re grilling between hot salt bricks, wrapping is counterproductive. The bread toasts up beautifully, with the moisture lurking in the butter that’s slathered on picking up just enough salt to push flavor into this sandwich from the outside in. The effect is not unlike an explosion, a Cubano supernova.

 

Chicken Piccata with Lemon & Pesto Flake Salts

Chicken Piccata with Lemon & Pesto Flake Salts 0

Our favorite springtime flavor duo: tried and true Lemon Flake Sea Salt, dappled with sunshine in the form of bright, pungent, candy-sweet lemon juice flavor, and fresh-in Pesto Flake Salt, which is made using DOP Genovese basil, Parmigiano-Reggiano and Pecorino Sardo cheeses, pine nuts and garlic! When mixed together, this pair is the perfect finishing touch on chicken piccata.

 

Goat Cheese with Cacao Nibs & Black Diamond Flake Salt

Goat Cheese with Cacao Nibs & Black Diamond Flake Salt 0

Black Diamond Flake Salt's pyramid-shaped crystals are very large and provide a nice toothsome crunch that makes for a marvelous counterpoint in texture on this creamy goat cheese appetizer. The raven color of this salt (along with the cacao nibs) also brings delightful visual contrast, sure to elicit an exclamation from your guests!

Blackberry Lime Pie with Pinot Noir Sea Salt

Blackberry Lime Pie with Pinot Noir Sea Salt 1

Pinot Noir Sea Salt, made using top-notch Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, has a strong aroma, bright visual impact, and a tamarind-like tart sweetness.

The salty sweet pops of flavor and color are a delightful surprise sprinkled on top of this blackberry lime pie!
