Nu-Salt is a salt substitute and you can get a sample sent to you from this website:

Can be prepared ahead of time and keeps in the refrigerator at least a week.

(Didn't last much longer than that due to being eaten!)

In place of red wine vinegar I have used regular and white vinegar.

I also have used Morton's no-salt in place of Nu-Salt.
