This is what we dip the cherry tomatoes in on page 28—but it makes a great gift too! Spiced salt—or, in this case, salted spice—adds a ton of flavor to food, which actually encourages people to use less salt! Plus, it keeps well and can be used in a lot of different dishes. 

Hands-on time: 5 minutes
Total time: 5 minutes
Makes: 1 Cup

Kitchen Gear: 

Measuring cup
Small bowl
Spoon, for mixing
Small clean, empty jar with lid 


1⁄4 cup
kosher salt
1⁄2 cup
curry powder, five-spice powder, chili powder, or ground ginger


  1. Put the salt and spice in the bowl and mix well.
  2. Spoon or pour the mixture into the jar for gifting. 


Or else

Instead of the spice, consider mixing the salt with 1⁄2 cup dried herbs that you crush in your hands before adding: basil, oregano, and thyme are all good options.
