Two Seasoned Salt Blends

November 3, 2014

Author Notes: Do you make a great blend of spices to jazz up your meals that everyone raves about? Do they want the recipe? Well, package them up and gift them to your friends and relatives! I offer my two favorites a nice Greek seasoning salt for roast chicken, grilled lamb chops and maybe even for a Greek salad dressing. The second is a Cajun salt that I use for everything from stews, gumbos and even for rubbing on our Thanksgiving turkeys before frying. These are simple, simple, simple but your friends will be happy!inpatskitchen

Oh thanks so much! The shakers came from a local grocery store (lol).
