Seasoning Salt

     I like to make as many things from scratch that I can and this is super easy and very versatile seasoning salt.  It's just nice to be able to make up things like this at home knowing that it does not contain any extra preservatives plus it saves money too! So that's a win win. This is great on veggies, chicken, seafood, and really anything that needs a little flavor added to it.                                             

4 1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
pinch of ginger

Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container.
