Who knew that a big chunk of salt could be so versatile in creating an array of foods from appetizers to desserts? I love my salt block and I am left extremely satisfied every time I cook with it. You would think that such a huge block of salt would leave your food with a strong salty flavor but it imparts just enough of the salt flavor to enhance the flavor of your food. I wanted to make a salad for our family dinner recently and put together some of my favorite fresh ingredients atop the salt block just a few minutes before serving. Even my two toddler sons enjoyed it! Feel free to pair this with San Pellegrino’s Aranciata Rossa for a citrus kick! I hope you enjoy this perfect salt block salad this spring or even summer!

    What a cool idea! I must say, I’m glad you didn’t make the cones – I was feeling singularly unaccomplished!
