The foundation of this recipe (softened butter and salt) is an excellent base with which to experiment. If serving Italian food combine chopped garlic, chopped parsley, lemon juice and lemon zest to the softened butter. If desiring something more sweet omit the salt, add sugar and orange zest to the softened butter. Be adventurous and have fun with it.
