I am delighted to welcome Jessica Goldman of Sodium Girl to The Kitchn today. Jess has an unusual mission for a young writer: Make eating sodium-free food sexy, fun, and delicious. Jess has a type of lupus that requires her to eat a very low-sodium diet, but she has turned this challenge into a quest for flavor without salt — and she has done it so well that it earned her a book deal. Look for her book on fresh, flavorful sodium-free eating next fall. Here she shares with us three low-sodium appetizers that are fantastic for summer entertaining.
Here’s the scene: You’ve spent the day prepping for a little get together (okay, what’s bound to be the hottest party of the summer). You haven’t left one detail unchecked. You’ve procured the wine, built a tremendous cheese platter, and constructed impressive apps full of smoked fish, sea salts, and creamy sauces. Even Ina and Martha would be impressed. But with thirty minutes before the gang arrives, you suddenly receive a call that throws all the hors d’oeuvres and garnish into the air. Sodium S.O.S.!
