Frequently asked questions:
This seasoning salt is fantastic on chicken, such as these roasted Cornish game hens. But, you can also use it on fish, vegetables, meat and more. You can also fill the salt into pretty glass jars and give as a homemade gift!
I recommend to use 1 ½ to 2 teaspoons of seasoning salt per whole chicken.
Store the seasoning salt in a dry, airtight container in the kitchen cabinet.
The seasoning salt will keep for about a year. After that, the ground herbs and spices will start to lose their flavor and even though the seasoning salt will never go bad, it will not be as flavorful.
The terms seasoned salt and seasoning salt mean the same thing and are used interchangeably.

What a great idea! I always want to make my own spice mix but never remember to actually get around to it. Yours looks so easy and yummy though I’ll give it a try!
Thank you so much, Lilli!
This is brilliant, Nicole!!! I am obsessed with seasoning salt, too, otherwise, I would not have spent a fortune on lemon salt, wine salt, chocolate salt, truffle salt etc at William Sonoma not so long ago. (I could just choose one, but they are all so pretty and interesting).
Next time when I need seasoning salt, I will come running back to this beautiful post of yours,
Thank you & Happy 4th of July to you & your family :)
Thank you so much, Pang, you’re so sweet! You certainly piqued my interest with wine salt, I’d never heard of that but it sounds fantastic! Going to have to check that out. Happy 4th of July to you and yours as well! :)
