Epicurean Kentuckian: Saliditas saltine crackers/galletas saladas



2018-02-24 - Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener, ColumbiaMagazine.com.

Many wonder why Saladitas are only available in Adair County on a hit-or-miss basis. They're one of the most hearty, tasty saltine crackers/galletas saladas on the market, found occasionally at Sav-A-Lot, Columbia's only downtown grocery. The big four-part cracker planks allow for select-a-size choices and don't fall apart, even under the weight of a slice of souse meat and round of onion, touches of jalapeno, original mustard, and of course, a little hot sauce, the delicacy on the paper plate at left. - EW
