How to Make Seasoned Salt?
It’s super simple to make. Simply blend in all the spices, herbs and salt together.
Jo’s-Tip: Use spices with almost same texture, ground fine. Like for instance use garlic granules (fine granules), granulated onion (instead of super fine onion powder), use pepper that is ground super fine.
It gives a consistent texture to the salt. Looks pretty as well right with all those uniform granules! Very crucial to evenly season the dish. Easy to pick with your fingers and sprinkle.
Helpful Tip: To ensure you grind pepper fine, use mortal and pestle. Ground pepper from hand blender would be coarsely ground and it separates from rest of the spices.
Choose course garlic powder and coarse onion powder instead of super fine spice powders.

This recipe is just what I needed! I find some seasoning salts are way too salty or a bit bland. Your recipe sounds like it’s perfect just the way it is. So handy to have around instead of trying to season up dinner with countless jars you have in the spice cabinet. Luckily I have all of the ingredients.
That’s a great tip to use seasonings with the same texture! I never would’ve thought of that. I’d love to give this recipe a try instead of buying store-bought!
I’m totally making this! I stopped buying seasoned salt when I cut out all processed foods because of the added junk in there. I never thought of making it myself. Thanks for the recipe!
