Have you heard that radio ad for Frank’s Red Hot Sauce? Where the granny says “I put that [bleep] on everything.“? Well, that’s how I use the 21 Seasoning Salute from Trader Joe’s. If I am using salt in something then I am probably also adding this. I like it because it has all kinds of herbs and goodies but no salt so it’s an all-purpose seasoning that can be used in lots of foods. It’s especially handy if I don’t happen to have any fresh herbs but want a quick and dirty way to spice up a dish. Trader Joe’s carries it in a 2.2 ounce bottle and it’s the only place that carries a seasoning mix like this, so I’m constantly replacing this tiny little bottle. Then one day when I was shopping at Costco I came across the Kirkland Organic No-Salt Seasoning. I swear it’s the warehouse bulk version of the TJ 21 Seasoning Salute. They both list the same ingredients, just in slightly different order. I was so happy! I already love Costco but now it’s just that much better because I can get the seasoning I’m obsessed with in a big shaker bottle. If you’ve wanted to try this and don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you, you can probably find it at Costco. But if you don’t live near a Costco, then I’m sorry.
In case you’re wondering, the ingredients on the TJ 21 Seasoning Salute is as follows.
- Spices (black pepper, celery seed, cayenne pepper, parsley, basil, majoram, bay leaf, oregano, thyme, savory, rosemary, cumin, mustard, coriander)
- Orange peel
- Tomato granules
- Lemon juice powder
- Oil of lemon
- Citric acid
Love this stuff!
