TIP OF THE DAY: Tomatoes With Flavored Sea Salt

Here’s an easy hors d’oeuvre or snack that’s delicious and different: cherry tomatoes with a choice of flavored sea salts.

Simply set out toothpicks and let family and guests enjoy a succulent cherry or grape tomato with a dip of flavorful salt.

Choose salts with contrasting colors, flavors and textures (crunchier coarse salt versus fine grain). Here we’ve used:

  • Alaea, a red volcanic salt from Hawaii.
  • A homemade mixture of coarse sea salt and dried rosemary (3:2 proportion).
  • Saffron-accented sea salt—one of our favorite products, and a great hostess gift.
    There are many other wonderful choices, from pink Himalayan sea salt to crunchy smoked Maldon sea salt from England, which has unique, pyramid-shaped crystals.
