Are you ready for a knock out seasoning that will be a staple in your kitchen this summer? Do you use traditional season salt? If so, this is the new and improved season salt for the summer months! It’s still a salt but infused with citrus and herbs that boost the flavors in ordinary foods to make them extraordinary. *Note, you could cut the amount of salt to make it more of a spice blend than a salt–don’t go rubbing it all over chicken or fish–it will be uneatable due to the high amount of sodium in this mix.
This is a super easy salt to make from all the spices you currently have on hand in your cupboard. This also makes for a great host/hostess gift. Whip up a batch in a pretty jar that seals well and bring this the next time your invited to a BBQ! Your host/hostess will be wowed that you not only brought them something, but a customized spice made specifically for them.
Look at the gorgeous colors this fresh seasoning makes once mixed together. Best of all you can store this seasoning salt for up to 3 months in a well sealed jar.
