You're quite right: Salt is an acquired taste.

...which I acquired from mom's cooking...
never making the connection to what kilt dad.

I have salt at my elbow mainly for when it's
Ted's turn to cook "tastes like 'hospital-food'" sick

I switched to Sea Salt years ago to cut down
on sodium, but only added Kosher Salt to my
cooking palette fact, just before
my feet began to puff-up and sting.......

Time to re-assess my cooking methods.

hey.. we live & we learn...if we're lucky
