If while cooking, you get too much salt in something or you scorch a recipe, take a potato, cut it into chunks, and cook it with the recipe. When ready to serve, remove the potato. You will be surprised at how much this will remove the salty or scorched taste.

If you want to remove some of the salt from your spaghetti sauce, put it on the stove and reheat it while adding a whole potato to it. Let this cook for awhile (I'd say at least 10-15 minutes). Remove and discard the potato. Your sauce should be free of much of the salt.

PS I've also heard that lettuce leaves will absorb salt.
It's worth a try.
