Acidity: The Other Seasoning

The California Cook reminds us that while salt has its place as a seasoning, sometimes a little acidity goes a long way:

When most cooks read “season to taste,” they automatically reach for the salt shaker. That’s not a bad start: A judicious sprinkling with salt will awaken many a dull dish. But if you stop there, many times you’ll be missing a key ingredient. Because just as a little salt unlocks flavor, so can a few drops of acidity.
