I think the "proverb" tag should be changed to "idiom".

Annotation:
As an imperative sentence, this would more likely have the literal meaning and not the idiomatic meaning.

In other words, this would more likely be someone telling another person to actually put salt in a wound as a medical treatment, or perhaps as a method of torture.
