You’ve probably bought a jar of Salad Supreme Seasoning at your favorite grocery store but, did you know it tastes the same and it’s easy and cost effective to make your own?
This is a great blend of herbs and spices and Parmesan cheese. You can claim it as your version by adding more or less of one of the ingredients. I go a little heavy on the garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Parmesan cheese can be replaced with Romano cheese, or leave the cheese out altogether.
Home-made Salad Supreme Seasoning tastes great when added to most any salad: potato salad, cabbage salad, chicken salad, pizza salad, crab salad and pasta salads. Sprinkle some on grilled or steamed vegetables ~ try it on baked potatoes or deviled eggs and even egg salad. It will spice up your hamburgers and chicken wings before grilling. Slather it on buttered breads before toasting, appetizers and sprinkle some on cottage cheese. Add it to vinegar and oil for a delicious vinaigrette. Then try it on pork ribs! Wherever your imagination takes you with it…
Here’s the home-made version (I double it):
Home-made Salad Supreme Seasoning
3 teaspoons sesame seeds
2 teaspoons paprika
1½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
1 teaspoon celery seeds
½ teaspoon garlic powder
2 dashes cayenne pepper
4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese or Romano (fresh is best)
Combine all ingredients and mix well.
Store in a covered container in the refrigerator.
Makes ½ cup
It’s a great “perk-up” for salads and veggies!
