If you've ruined a dish by oversalting it, try stirring in 1 teaspoon each of sugar and vinegar; cook for a few minutes and taste.
For dishes such as soup or stew, add a peeled, sliced raw potato and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the potato before serving. Oversalted soups can also be helped by adding more liquid or vegetables.
