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.)

Grilled Avocado Stuffed with Tomato and Feta
1 ripe avocado
1 small ripe tomato, cut into ¼-inch dice
1 tbsp crumbled feta cheese
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
Olive oil
Salt for Life
Freshly ground pepper

Turn on grill. Cut avocado in half and remove the seed. Brush lightly with olive oil and place slices on grill for 2 minutes. Season with Salt for Life and pepper to taste. Top each half with tomato and feta. Garnish with lime juice.
Sweet Corn Salsa
1 cup fresh corn, cut off the cob (or if not available frozen corn-1/2 of a 10oz. package, thawed)
1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1/4 cup sweet green pepper
2 Tablespoon chopped red onion
1 Tablespoon snipped fresh cilantro
1-1/2 Teaspoon lime juice
1/8 Teaspoon ground black pepper
Salt for Life
