Along with many of you, I've made a few goals for this new year. One of them involves looking for and supporting more local business. I'm lucky to live in a place where there is a plethora of wonderful farms, ranches, orchards and great business to support- some of which I just need to go on a walk to enjoy. Not only do I prefer eating local food because it keeps the money in my community, but it is fresher, often organic (whether certified or not) and hopefully by making this effort now-- my grandkids will have something safe to serve their kids fifty years from now. To see a list of some of the places and business I'm talking about click here.
There is one business here in Utah that is world famous, Redmond REAL SALT. Real Salt is an all-natural, kosher-certified sea salt extracted from deep within the Mother earth. It has flecks of color from the result of more than 50 trace minerals essential to our good health. Better than that- it tastes good- not processed, because it isn't! And I get to give some away- $35 worth of their wonderful product. All you have to do is comment on my blog about YOUR favorite local business or food. Where do you like to shop? Do you have a local business you support? I want to hear about it and why! The contest is open to all my blogging friends and I will do a random drawing. A winner will be announced the beginning of February one month from when I started blogging.
Now to the recipe: I used Real Salt of course in this wonderful salad that we ate as a main course. I found the recipe at Basil and Ginger and went on to make my own changes. The dressing is wonderful and compliments the other ingredients nicely. My son thought it went well with his tortilla chips . . .
On the edge of my chair to see who get's the REAL SALT
and what your favorite local's are!
