Boring and plain food makes me sad. Sometimes it can be difficult to make something simple exciting. That is where flavored salts like this Basil Balsamic Flavored Salt come in. It is a great way to spice up a simple piece of chicken, pork, steak, or even vegetables with exciting flavors. I love to let the flavors of the salt shine to appreciate the mixture. Try out this Basil Balsamic Flavored Salt on some great bread drizzled with just a little olive oil. It is amazing!
This Basil Balsamic Flavored Salt is crazy easy to make, guys! Literally just put the ingredients in a food processor, pulse, and you are done! You can use it right away if you want, but the flavors do develop more if you are able to let it sit for a day or longer. It is best to use a small food processor to ensure the blade can reach the ingredients and get a good blend.
The primary base of this is still salt and not another seasoning, so use it sparingly like you would salt. I love to use this stuff for special events, parties, and gatherings. Especially in the summer with Father’s Day and the 4th of July when you are most likely grilling anyway. And it is great as a gift for anyone that loves cooking or grilling, like Dad, because sometimes it is just IMPOSSIBLE to figure out what to give them. Food is always a good idea, right? And this is something they can use and enjoy, whether they share or not. 🙂

- 1/2 cup kosher salt
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
- Place the salt, dried basil, and balsamic in a small food processor.
- Pulse just a few times until everything is incorporated.
- The salt will be slightly wet from the balsamic. Spread the salt out on a baking sheet and let dry either in a warm oven or overnight. It might stick together a little, but you can easily break it up with your hands when dried to store.
- Pour the salt into a container for storing. The flavors will continue to build over time. Place a pinch of dry, uncooked rice in the container to help keep it from caking and absorbing moisture.
