I don't harden the size for salted paper.
In my experience, salted paper is the least contrasty of all processes. It
handles incredibly hard negatives, too hard for any non-alternative silver
paper. It can find detail in the deepest shadows (through self-masking) without
losing the most subtle highlight.
I would try to produce a negative that suits the range of salted paper,
instead of trying to make your sensitizer suit your negative.
