Twinkle Spice

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.

kitchen gear

  • Measuring cups
  • Small bowl
  • Spoon, for mixing
  • Small clean 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. 


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.
