Homemade Seasoning Salt

Last Updated on

Although I have long aimed to cook completely from scratch there are still a few items that I habitually use in their pre-prepared version without even thinking about it.

One of those guys is seasoning salt. I don’t use it often but every once in a while when I put a chicken breast in the oven or want to jazz up some vegetables I reach for the container of Lawry’s that’s been in our cabinet ever since I can remember.

After taking a look at the ingredient list the other day I realized it should be easy to put a few spices and dried herbs together myself and toss the pre-made stuff that’s laden with anti-caking agents and “natural flavors.”

It turns out it was easy. My final mix consisted of only six ingredients (one of them salt) and was bursting with great flavor. I tried it on poultry, fish and vegetables and it was fantastic on all. Definitely way better than the store-bought stuff. :)

    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!

    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! :)
