In brief: Immediately, No

You can reduce your blood pressure by eating foods that are low in sodium, saturated fat, total fat, and cholesterol, and high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lowfat dairy foods.
Specific food claims are based on belonging to one of the above groups. Commonly cited foods include: celery, cold water fish, broccoli, dandelion, whole grain oats, black beans, berries, low fat dairy, etc.

In brief: Not exactly

Some people may have salt sensitive high blood pressure.
In those circumstances eating a low salt diet can help lower blood pressure. The dash diet as a whole has been shown to lower blood pressure as well. Here is a really good guide to the dash diet: http://www.Nhlbi.Nih.Gov/health/public/heart/hbp/dash/new_dash.Pdf.
