Trina’s Everyday Seasoning Salt
(Paleo & Gluten-Free)

Hey, what’s shaking in your kitchen?

Here’s what’s been going down in mine – lots and lots of this super-easy Everyday Seasoning Salt!

When your quick meals could use a dash of something to give them a bigger and bolder flavor, this simple spice mix will definitely get your taste buds dancing.

I came up with this all-purpose spice mix for my meal prep guide and cookbook, but what the heck. I wanted to share it with you now because I know you’ll be reaching for it again and again.

This one’s simple yet powerful. An herb & spice blend that only needs 8 common ingredients – you probably have all of them sitting in your spice rack right now. And of course this easy seasoning recipe is paleo, gluten-free and Whole30-compliant.

Instantly boost the flavor of any dish with this quick and easy spice blend. The Everyday Seasoning Salt recipe is paleo and gluten-free. Makes a little over 1/2 cup so it should last you a good while!

It’s just what you need to jazz up almost any dish. Eggs, chicken, fish, potatoes, roasted veggies – you name it. That’s why I named it Everyday Seasoning Salt – you’ll find yourself using this one just about every day to perk up any dish on the fly.

Take note, this seasoning salt is a little sassy with a touch of heat. The overall effect is more savory than spicy I think – but if you’d prefer a milder version, just scale back on the recipe’s chili flakes, or leave them out altogether.

I’m pretty generous when spreading the love around with this one – especially when I’m using it to add an extra spark of flavor to my grilled dishes. Just adjust how much you use to suit your own personal taste.

Shake up a batch of this easy seasoning mix (it makes 1/2 cup or so) and store it sealed in your cupboard away from heat and light.

But keep it within easy reach … for the next couple of easy paleo recipes I post here on Paleo Newbie, you’ll need it.

Shake things up in your kitchen today and try this easy Everyday Seasoning Salt recipe for your next quick meal!

Awesome Paleo Avocado Sauce

Here’s how you can quickly turn even the simplest salad into something truly amazing with just 8 ingredients and your blender!

Instead of the same old salad dressing or vinaigrette, give this avocado-based topping loaded with healthy fat and vibrant flavors a try.

This creamy concoction starts with half an avocado and adds a little tanginess from a fresh-squeezed lime with just a touch of heat from half a jalapeño pepper.

Definitely a little Mexican flair going on with this one – which makes it particularly amazing for something like that taco salad in the picture.

The uses you’ll find for this versatile sauce go way beyond just salads. This is actually one of my favorite toppings for quite a few of my meat and fish dishes too.

Whenever you’ve got an entrée that could use a little extra punch, give this quick sauce a whirl and apply generously – the freshness and contrasting flavors will instantly brighten almost any dish.

So you might be thinking since this sauce is avocado-based, it’s going to turn fast and look all yucky. Nope … in fact you can actually store this sauce sealed in your fridge up to a week and it will stay fresh and green – that lime juice in the mix really helps keep the avocado from oxidizing. Pretty cool, right?

And like I said, this one couldn’t be much easier. Just 8 simple ingredients and it whips up in a blender super-fast. (In case you’re curious, for the paleo mayo I just used Primal Kitchen’s Avocado Oil Mayo – highly recommended!)

If after your first go-around in the blender the sauce seems a bit thick, just add a little water and blend again until it’s the perfect consistency. And I should mention here you can dial back the lime juice and jalapeño in the recipe if you’d prefer a milder sauce. You know the drill…keep blending, adding and tasting until you get it just the way you like it.

And here’s a little hint: For a fancier presentation, just pour the sauce into a simple squeeze bottle and apply in bright green ribbons to add a little extra artistic flair to your dishes.

And one more plus for all you on the Whole30 program, this paleo sauce is fully compliant so no worries.

Hope you enjoy this one and let me know what you think!
