Italian Seasoned Salt

Seasoned salts are this year’s Foodies’ suggestion as a present, and we start the recipe series off with this Italian Seasoned Salt. This is a very versatile salt: you can use it to season chicken, fish or vegetables in a salad. My favorite: Use it to season a quick creamy sauce to make a quick no-thought pasta for a busy weekday dinner.
