      I have eaten this cumin salt on salad and I also tried it in some soup today. I love adding cumin to various dishes I cook, so looked forward to trying this recipe. I think cumin has such a distinctive, kind of smokey flavor and it is very good in Mexican food, soups and stews. I have struggled with how to rate this recipe. I didn't really care for it on my salad yesterday. When I put it in the soup today, I liked it but didn't love it. This mixture is very strong-flavored and, in my opinion, almost overpowers what it is sprinkled on or into. I really, really wanted to like it more. I have some left over and will try it on corn, when we start grilling more, as it gets more toward summertime.
