Salt? Is It Just Me?

It grosses me out to see people salt their food before they eat it. I may have posted about this before, but it still boggles my mind. I do not salt anything after it has been cooked except baked potatoes and boiled eggs. Why are people adding all that salt? I don't even own a salt shaker. My brother brought a salt shaker to our beach cottage this past May because he knew I wouldn't have one, and almost everyone, except us, used it. When I told my neighbor that I add fresh ground pepper to the mayo when I make a sandwich, she said she also adds salt. I don't get it. I have kosher salt that I use for cooking and that's it. I feel insulted when people salt the food I have prepared. It was salted already!  Is it just me? Does everyone salt everything?

I don't salt (I'd often actually like to be able to unsalt) and I totally get your point, how can you salt something if you haven't even tasted it yet? It makes no sense. None.

Hey Jazz, if we could create the "unsalt" we might get rich!

I agree wholeheartedly! I never salt anything on the table and always wonder how people can automatically add salt to their food without tasting it first.
