Aloha! I hope everyone is having a great weekend!!
We have almost reached the end of our little Hawaiian Style adventure and with just one more post to go I wanted to share another Luau side dish with you. But first I have to tell you about the star ingredient of this salad and it comes straight from the fires of Hawaii…
Alright foodie friends, you know that moment when you try something for the first time….
At first you are not quite sure what to expect but then as the flavors dance across your taste buds you are mumbling (because there is food in your mouth) “Oh my God, this is the best thing I’ve ever ate.” Well let me introduce you to Hot Lava Salt.
This Hot Lava Salt is a Hawaiian Sea Salt infused with hickory smoke, active charcoal, garlic and chili peppers. Hot Lava Salt is good on just about everything steaks, chicken, fish, popcorn, and especially tomatoes. I picked up a bag of this salt last year while on the Island of Maui (it’s actually made on the Island of Kauai) because I was intrigued by it’s blackish color and its cool name “Hot Lava”.
I returned home put it in my pantry and was saving it for the perfect day….
One night I had some beautiful little campari tomatoes I quarter them and sprinkled them with the Hot Lava Salt and that was the beginning of my slight obsession with this product.
Fast forward a year….
As I’ve been planing out menu items for the upcoming Luau party I wanted to have some kind of simple salad with the Hot Lava Salt. I though about doing just sliced tomatoes, but I wanted it to have a bit more of a tropical flair. Instead of just tomatoes I tossed in some avocado, mango, and just a touch of cilantro. Then sprinkle on the smoky, spicy, garlic, salt and it doesn’t get better than that.
You can order some of this Hot Lava Salt from The Salty Wahine . or just plan a trip to Hawaii 🙂
