Svanuri Marili (also known as Svanetian salt or simply Svan salt) is traditional spicy salt made in Svaneti, a mountainous region in the northwestern part of Georgia. Svanuri salt is very popular in Georgian cuisine and is widely used in many dishes. It is a mixture of salt, pepper and various spices that provide it with its trademark piquant flavor. It goes well with meat, salads, omelettes and fried potatoes. Tourists visiting Georgia frequently buy several packs to take home.
