This Homemade Seasoning Salt is the best-flavored salt blend to add to all of your favorite recipes! Natural, frugal, quick & easy, it’s much healthier than using Lawry’s. Try using it in your favorite soups, casseroles, and roasted potato recipes!
I like to make my own spice blends because that way, I know exactly what flavors are going into my recipes, AND they’re also free of chemicals, fillers, and sugars! I’ve made a super easy 9 Spice Mix for chicken or vegetables, a Homemade Montreal Steak Seasoning, a Blackened Seasoning, a Homemade Italian Seasoning, and even a delicious Homemade Taco Seasoning!
Now when it comes to a seasoning salt, I’d like a better option than Lawry’s seasoned salt recipe, which has salt, herbs, and spices – BUT it also has sugar, corn starch, sunflower oil, natural flavorings, and chemical additive to make it ‘free-flowing.’
No thanks! I don’t need sugars, refined oils, artificial flavorings, and a chemical to make my salt blend seasoning flow out of a jar.
This recipe is so easy to put together, and trust me, once you make your own seasoning salt recipe, you will never buy chemical-filled store-bought seasoning blends again!
Homemade Seasoning Salt
Not only is this season salt recipe crazy easy, but it’s also:

What is Seasoned Salt?
Most seasoned salt is a mix of salt, herbs, and spices. The simple yet robust flavor of this all-purpose seasoning is delicious on main dishes like rotisserie chicken, and side dishes like Instant Pot Steamed Vegetables. Or sprinkle seasoned salt on Potato Wedges!
This homemade seasoned salt makes a great substitute for Lawry’s seasoning salt!
What is Seasoning Salt Made of?
With only a handful of ingredients, you’ll have a wonderful mix to add flavor to your meals.
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Salt (or leave the salt out if you need a salt-free seasoning)
- Chili powder
- Dried parsley

Psst! If you’re going to add salt, I highly recommend Ava Jane’s Kitchen. You may think all salt is created equal, but unfortunately, 90% of the salt produced around the world contains microplastics (gross, right?). Ava Jane’s Kitchen is an exception. Their salt is 100% microplastic-free, and it’s SO GOOD! Plus, you can get a bag for just 1¢!! (Get your penny bag of salt on this page.)
How to Make DIY Seasoned Salt
Step 1: Combine salt, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, paprika, dried parsley, and black pepper in a small bowl or jar.
Step 2: Mix or shake well. Store in an airtight jar or airtight container.
That’s it! By the way, I love to use these little glass spice jars to store my homemade seasoning blends.
What Do You Use Seasoning Salt for?
As I mentioned above, using seasoned salt is such a great way to add more depth of flavor to your recipes. It truly adds a layer of dimension that can’t be replaced with salt alone. Try using it in some of these wonderful recipes! (Remember to use in place of salt if you add the salt to this seasoning blend).
