You know that little bit of magic you taste in so many restaurant dishes?
Well, it happens to come from the fact that many restaurants do not use plain salt, they use seasoned salt. It truly does add more than one dimension to a dish and leaves your taste buds craving more.
Watching sodium? No worries, just omit the salt and you have a salt-free all-purpose seasoning for mere pennies.
DIY Seasoned Salt
- ¼ cup garlic powder
- ¼ cup onion powder
- ¼ cup salt--leave the salt OUT to keep this salt-free or add to make seasoned salt
- 2 Tbsp chili powder
- 3 Tbsp paprika
- 2 Tbsp dried parsley
- 1 Tbsp pepper
Combine all ingredients and store in air-tight container.
I like to store this blend in a glass jar and use as needed.
Seasoned salt adds SO much flavor to a homemade dish. This salt can be used on just about anything, from potatoes, to soup, to casseroles. I find that adding it to Broccoli Cheese Soup or Ham and Bean Soup adds a layer of dimension that can not be replaced with regular salt.
What dishes do you want to try with this blend?
