This is what we dip the cherry tomatoes in — 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.
- 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
- Put all the ingredients in the bowl and mix well.
- 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.
