In Western cuisines, salt is used in cooking, and also made available to diners in salt shakers on the table.
Table salt is refined salt, which contains about 97% to 99% sodium chloride. It usually contains substances that make it free-flowing (anti-caking agents) such as sodium silicoaluminate or magnesium carbonate.
Sometimes people also add a few grains such as uncooked rice in salt shakers to absorb extra moisture and help break up clumps when anti-caking agents are not enough to keep the salt free flowing.
There are a wide variety of sea salts and finishing salts available.
Excellent. The flavor from roasted garlic and creamy avocado was just delicious. I oven roasted garlic instead of pan, and we served it with some Mexican fresh cheese, some bacon bits, sun-flower seeds, and homemade tortilla chips. It didn't last long, after we shot the photos, we finished up everything within 10 minutes. Hmm, will be making this again soon for sure.
