It seems like a no-brainer to use salt-free items (tomatoes, butter, vegetables) in recipes and then add salt to taste. We’re particularly fond of these petite diced tomatoes from Del Monte which taste remarkably fresh for a canned product. The small size makes them perfect for bruschetta and salsa, but they’re also a good addition to soups, casseroles, and chilies. Sodium adds up to 50 milligrams of per half cup instead of the usual 280 mg found in regular varieties.
