    potato works best, it absorbs the salt from the liquid. you may also want to as in a little bit of water as well so that that soup does not become too thick because the potato will also absorb the water.

    ~~~if you have potatos,,,,peel a couple,,,cut in half,,,let simmer in the beans and rice for about 10 -15 min,,,,, the potatos will absorb the extra salt.

    place four peeled potatos in the soup and simmer for half an hour it should reduce the salt content by one third. If its really thick you need to double batch it.

    I've heard adding a potato can help. Peel and dice and add to the pot. Cook until the potato is done.

    peel a potato and throw it in whole. It'll suck up a lot of the salt.
