Salt

zero derivation adjective
One’s props. Usually used in the phrase “Give me some salt” to refer to giving one the respect they are do. Likely an extension of the phrase “Worth one’s salt”, this would refer to the worthiness of the person asking for respect.
 
Wow, that sure was impressive. I’ve got to give you your salt for that.
Etymology : Possibly a metaphor stemming from the phrase “to be worth one’s salt”
