How to Make Herb Salts

Cooking is one of the ways I relax. I love creating new recipes, new ideas with food, and I can imagine myself as Gordon Ramsay one day. Well, minus the soccer background.

One of the things I love to do is play with herbs and seasonings. I go rouge with them a lot, and often go away from mainstream. Today, I am going to release the secrets and share with you how to make herb salts.

First, you will need salt.

When you visit a link in this article that takes you to a different website where you can purchase something, I may earn a commission. Read my full disclosure for more details.

I personally choose RealSalt, because it has some minerals left in it, has lots of flavor and is still affordable. Other good salts for this are Himalayan, or Kosher.

Using plain table salt will get you a very salty recipe and may not work as well. Plus, there are the health risks with using plain table salts that you really don’t want… so just don’t. Each recipe can be halved, doubled, or tripled as needed.

Basic House Seasoning

  • 1/4 cup RealSalt
  • 2 T. Black Pepper
  • 2 T. garlic powder

This is my “go to” salt for seasoning just about everything from eggs to fish and chicken. It sits on the counter in a pinch bowl for easy access as well.

Season Salt

  • 1/2 cup Real Salt
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp curry seasoning

This is great on steaks, burgers, or anything else you want to toss on the grill. I also have used it in mashed potatoes, on baked potatoes and anywhere a “kick” is needed.

Lemon Salt

  • 1/4 cup Real Salt
  • 2 T. dried lemon peel
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

Great for fish, pasta, or compound butter seasoning. This has a lemony kick that tastes great on chicken too.

Chili Powdered Salt

  • 1/4 cup Real Salt
  • 3 T. paprika
  • 2 T. Oregano
  • 2 T. Cumin
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. cocoa powder

This is great for anywhere you would use chili powder. In chili, in homemade taco seasoning, or and added kick to sauces.

  1. I love how beautiful and vibrant spices look all laid out next to one another. I have been thinking I need to put together some spice blends to have on hand. It would save so much time!
