Herbed Sea Salt

The first time I had herbed salt was when Nigel Walker of Eatwell Farm gave me some of his lavender salt. After that, I started experimenting with other herbs, even combining some to make mixed herb sea salts. My favorite is basil sea salt, which I make to sprinkle on Watermelon Slices with Basil Sea Salt. If your salt starts to cake up, simply give it another whirl in the grinder.

In a coffee grinder, combine the herbs and salt. Pulse until mixed well. Store in an airtight glass container.
