  1. Lemon salt!!! Now there's another great idea from your kitchen. (PS Loved the last post too - a great take on arancini. Oh! and PPS - I've tried your anchovy and walnut sauce on gnocchi - out of this world.)

  3. Lemon-infused salt? Where have I been? I love this salad and I need to go to the store I see!

  4. Hello Jodi Nina, So glad you like!
    Use a riper lemon for better infusion, ~Sound technical~
