Make your Own Seasoning Salt

I have recently gotten into making my own seasonings. I have made my own Taco Seasoning and Ranch Seasoning. I decided to try to make a seasoning salt that I could put on just about anything. This seasoning is so versatile, it is awesome on meat and chicken and delicious and vegetables and potatoes! I even added to my Homemade Mac and Cheese in a Mug that we made a couple of weeks ago. I love it and it is so easy to make!

Seasoning Salt

Yield: Makes 3 cups


1/2 cup each...
• coarse salt (I use Kosher salt)
• ground black pepper
• onion powder
• garlic powder
1/4 cup each... 
• paprika
• dried parsley
• ground cumin

1/8 cup each...
• crushed red pepper flakes
• chili powder
1 Tablespoon cayenne powder (You can add more if you like more heat)


Mix all spices in a medium bowl until well combined.
Pour into an airtight jar and store in a cool, dry, dark place.

Stored properly, this spice will keep for three months. This seasoning salt can be used on just about anything. It is delicious on steak, ground beef, chicken, pork, fish, potatoes, sautéed or roasted   vegetables, and more!

To marinade chicken or beef , combine 2 tablespoons of seasoning salt and 6 tablespoons of olive oil in a bowl. Pour it over the meat and turn the meat to evenly coat all sides. Stick meat in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to marinade.

  1. How cool! I've never thought of making my own seasoning salt. I love how you can tweak this to taste. I've always thought commercial seasoning salt was a little too salty (if that makes sense) but with this you can taste and tweak!
