Mediterranean Flavored Salt

Prep Time5 mins
Total Time5 mins
Servings: 1 cup



  • Place the salt, oregano, lemon pepper, thyme, and garlic powder in a small food processor. Add the zest of half a lemon.
  • Pulse just a few times until everything is incorporated.
  • 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.
  • If your salt is wet from the lemon zest, spread it out on a baking sheet to dry before putting in a container.


It is best to use a small food processor to ensure the blade can reach the ingredients, although a larger one will still work.
I love to use jars like this to store the flavored salts in, but you can also use empty spice containers.  These jars would fit approximately half of one batch of salt.
Use a microplane for easy zesting.
If you do not have lemon pepper, you can substitute for regular, black pepper and increase the amount of lemon zest to one whole lemon.
