Years ago, when I was backpacking through Europe, I met up with an Irish girl who was living in Spain and working as a Nanny.  We spent a week together exploring the Wonders of Andalusia and parted as life long friends.  Several years later, I had the opportunity to visit her at her family home in County Calway, Ireland.  Visiting this place, a stark contrast to the moorish beauty of Southern Spain, I was enchanted by the natural splendor of the wild Irish coast, where you would find deer grazing upon the cliffs as if they were in rolling pastures rather than on a dangerous precipice.  Having made the most of her time in Spain, Joanna learned to cook and returned to Ireland to earn a living concocting dishes which combined traditional Irish ingredients with those that actually make a meal edible.  Our Dill Salt is one of her creations.
