About the sea salt. Technically all salt is sea salt since it all comes from the sea. But most salts labeled "sea salt" are large grain, and they dissolve more slowly. You can go to smaller grains such as kosher salt or table salt. If you do, because they are so concentrated, cut back on the herbs. But this is one of those recipes where you can adjust it to your taste. Click here to learn more about the different types of salt.


  • Prep. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. We put it in a little pewter bowl on the dining table with a little tiny spoon.
  • Storing the seasoned salt. You can use it right away, but it gets better after a week of aging as the aromatic herbs fully penetrate the crystals. Simply place the seasoned salt in a jar, seal, and set aside until ready to use.
