Look at this lovely lavender salt given to me by a friend. It's a wet, rough salt with all the herbal fragrance of lavender infused in big, flaky chunks of salt. It's absolutely delicious, but I also want more inspiration for creative ways to use it.
Like the truffle salt Elizabeth mentioned earlier today, flavored are a great way to add a little special something to otherwise simple dishes. One thing I have done (and loved) with this lavender salt is smeared crackers with a little bit of soft goat cheese, drizzled some honey on top, then sprinkled with just a tiny pinch of lavender salt crystals.
But I'd love more ideas, too. Have you ever used lavender salt, and if so, on what?
