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

    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!

  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.
