DCVB gives Spanish equivalents not yet accepted by RAE

The Catalan-Valencian-Balearic dictionary helpfully gives Spanish equivalents:

Tornar salar; salar excessivament; cast. resalar.

that sometimes haven’t yet made it into the Royal Spanish Academy dictionary, either in the standard or the extended meaning–by analogy with “over-salted”, resalado/a is used familiarly for someone who is doubly delightful, gorgeous, and appears as such in Andalusian Caló dialogue in Blasco Ibáñez’s La horda (“resalá”).
