Darlings, as you know from past posts, La Diva lurves her Culinary Throwdowns and Dim Sum Sunday food challenges. And seeing as I was the winner (yeah, dat's right, snitches, bow down!) of Troll's last challenge for SMOKE and FIRE, I get to pick and judge the next challenge! (be afraid)
With all the power bestowed upon me, I have decided to give it back and asked Moi to judge instead. She's much more fair-minded than La Diva and has the witty way of words. And besides, this is really all about "pushing boundaries" for me and a bit of fun! Everyone likes to win once in a while but I do love to see all the creativity and interpretations of everyone's entries, so don't be shy.
Ever since Troll's Steak and Potato challenge, La Diva been wanting to do something with SALT.
That's right! At one time in the world, plain old salt was more valuable than gold and should not be underestimated or undervalued in our kitchens. La Diva don't care what kind of salt, as long as it features predominately in the making of or taste of the recipe. (no, blogging buds, you KNOW I'm NOT talkin' bout just adding plain old Mortons iodized salt in your stew and calling that a challenge!)

Here are some ideas to get you started:
You can use any salt you like but I encourage you to get out of your cooking box and try something new.
WEDNESDAY, December 9 is the deadline, so that gives you plenty of time after Turkey Day and before Christmas to participate! As always, let me know in my comments section you are "UP" and Moi and I will come round and check out your entry! Now, be the "salt of the earth" and get to thinking about your entry or you "won't be worth your salt" if you don't participate!
(Don't have a blog? Email La Diva and I'll put your entry on my post.)
