The large flakes of the Cyprus Black Flake Sea Salt are great for Salads; they add contrast to your plate. I use Cyprus Black / White Flake on a Caprese Salad. Use the Cyprus Black on the mozzarella cheese and Cyprus White on the tomatoes and basil, it looks great. About The Salt: This is a unique and versatile product which is 100% natural, with all natural flavoring. The production process can take up to two years, in order to achieve the perfect balance of weather and temperature to create the right texture and flavor. On the Island of Cyprus, Sea salt flakes are made in the traditional manner, through the evaporation of seawater. The sea water is channeled through a series of ponds or into shallow lagoons called salins. The water is then fed into large pans where it is slowly heated until delicate pyramid crystals form. The process repeats until the sea salt reaches 3% humidity. This process is also environmentally friendly, fueled mostly by solar power.
