Low-Sodium Food Fireworks

Low-Sodium Spicy Sauce

If you’re looking for something explosive, make this spicy mayo.

Mix these two ingredients together: a 1/4 cup of the no-sodium mayo and a 1/2 teaspoon of the no-sodium chili paste. Then dip something, like sliced bell peppers or cauliflower chunks, into it. Bite, chew, eat. And taste the fire.

Serious fire.

It is still amazing to me that two simple low-sodium ingredients can pack so much punch. And that they can quickly transform anything — from a cool coleslaw to fajita fillings — into a meal that will give today’s sparklers a run for their money.

Today, I’ve put together a little menu for you all for your Fourth of July celebrations, whether you plan on enjoying a picnic, a potluck, or a BBQ. And I can assure you that all these recipes have so much flavor, that even your salt eating friends will enjoy them.

So be sure to share and spread the joy of freedom from salt.

Chow on.
