They yogurt really worked great!
by: Anonymous

I added a small cup of yogurt (not sure if it was plain) but it worked great! I guess if it was flavored then you could say the salt and the yogurt worked great! Thanks!!

Too Much Salt?
by: Anonymous

If you added too much salt, add some plain yogurt to it. There's no actual ratio to it, just add to taste.

If you're a bit unsure of how it's going to taste, then mix some up in a bowl for your own sample.

How to Fix Salty Mashed Potatoes
by: Soul Food Chef

I normally recommend using a peeled potato to absorb the extra salt. But since your dish is mashed potatoes this want work.

Sorry to say that probably your best bet is to start over.

Does anyone else have any tips or ideas as how best to salvage mashed potatoes that are too salty?
