Home-made Salad Supreme Seasoning

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!

  1. When I started reading this I thought oh, no, going to be 43 ingredients. So happy to see how few there are. I do need one or two though. Store day tomorrow.

  2. Wow, this looks like a great multi-purpose seasoning. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Stephen, Good, you're going to try it. Lucky for both of us, it only has a few ingredients!

    The Slow Roasted Italian, thanks! It's good on those summer salads!

  4. I love the sound of this, will certainly give this a try, I just need to go shopping. Diane

  5. This is a great ingredient list. I love homemade dressings. They really are so much better! I like your blog. I am happily following you now. :)

  6. I love to find recipes for home made seasoning; you know what's in it; this one looks great. Thanks Pam.

  7. Diane, great! I think you'll like it!

    Mary, I agree! Thanks for stopping by!

    Rita, You're right! You know exactly what it consists of!

  8. I didn't even know you could buy premade salad seasoning LOL! I always do recipes from scratch and season according to what I'm making. This looks like a wonderful all purpose seasoning to have on hand though! =)

  9. Que rico, esto tiene que estar para no parar


  10. I love the short list of items, this sounds like it would be wonderful.

  11. My salads could stand an awakening Pam!

  12. I thought it was going to have alot of ingredients, too...this is easy!

  13. Oh my goodness this is great! Thanks so much for the recipe and I am looking forward to making this really soon, I can see how it would be tasty on almost anything!!

  14. Hi Pam - Your seasoning blend looks like just the thing for summer salads and cookout dishes. I can almost taste it on a baked potato or a hamburger. Thanks for sharing this.

  15. I've actually never heard of this seasoning before...could be cause of the limited food supplies on island. Your mix sounds incredible though so I'll def have to give it a try :)

  16. Pam, this is such a good idea. This will make my salads sing. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary.

  17. What a fabulous blend! Very different from mine, so it will be fun to try it! Thanks for sharing!

  18. what a great idea, this sounds delicious!

  19. I use a lot of this, especially in the summer, on pasta salads. Thanks for sharing your homemade recipe for this!!

  20. I am printing this recipe now! We are going to mix up a batch of this today!

  21. Boy Pam you have been a busy bee, I like this also I am going to make this, and want to order some spices and make some other combinations as well.
    I like making them at home, because you can control the salt, and as we all know everything store bought must have 1/2 cup of salt no matter what it is .

  22. Hi Pam, Just ran across your website looking for a copy cat recipe for the salad supreme. Nice site will be back to see what else you have. We love this seasoning on salmon. We pan grill it with this seasoning, don't need anything else. Thanks again.

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…

You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”

Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.

Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!

A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.
