Recipes: Summer Eats by Salt for Life

Celebrate the last few weeks of summer (perhaps for your Labor Day party?) with two entertaining-friendly recipes from Salt for Life, an alternative to regular table salt that boasts never-before-seen levels of sodium reduction and the addition of potassium, a necessary nutrient. (In fact, most people only consume about half of the daily recommended value of potassium.)
