This is a one-star recipe if you use the amount of salt indicated in the recipe. It was inedible despite all efforts to salvage it. You should probably use no more than a teaspoon, total, rather than a tablespoon. With the smaller amount of salt, I suspect this recipe would be delicious.

Yummy!!! Only used a few sprinkles of salt though, it seems that your recipe uses too much.

Seriously simple, yet fabulous. I made this as written using the crushed red pepper in half the amount listed. Thanx for an easy and tasty way to fix some healthy greens!
