Why Salt ?

Why did Lot's wife turn into a pillar of salt ? Why not ketchup or something else ?
Tosfos in Brochos 40a explains that salt is used on the table when we eat to protect from harm. Thus it serves to remind us of positive connections. To always strive for chesed , not the reverse.
Now may be a good time for a gem of Torah study.
