Making your own seasoned salt like this DIY Oregano-Lemon Salt is quick, easy and adds wonderful flavors to your recipes. I was flipping through a magazine recently and came across a recipe for DIY Basil Salt.
It was pretty self explanatory; though I never thought of making it myself. I had just clipped the last of my fresh oregano from my little herb garden and knew that adding some fresh lemon zest to the mix would taste great on a roasted chicken. AND...I was right!
This recipe only takes about 5 minutes to make; however, you need to let it air dry for about 24 hours before storing it in an airtight container. Once stored, you can save it up to 4 months in a cool, dry place.
Use this Oregano-Lemon Salt on meat, poultry, fish, pasta or vegetables. Anywhere you want those fresh Mediterranean flavors to shine through.
