Use this homemade herbal seasoning salt to add flavor to meat, salads, salad dressings, soups, sandwiches and more. A friend of mine even likes it on scrambled eggs!
I keep this seasoning salt on hand at all times, storing it in glass jars with my spices.
We always double or triple the recipe. This is a great job for kids, by the way, with a bit of supervision.
When you mix up your own seasoning salts, you get to choose the ingredients (and leave out the yucky stuff, like MSG). I prefer to use unrefined sea salt, which actually benefits the body (as opposed to regular table salt, which does not). I also recommend sourcing organic dried herbs. You might even decide to grow a few herbs yourself!
- 1 cup unrefined sea salt
- ½ cup dried parsley
- 2 teaspoons onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon basil
- 1 teaspoon sage
- ½ teaspoon dill weed
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend well.
- Store in a glass jar in a cool, dry place.
