I have to admit that I quit buying the name brand years ago because the cost is ridiculous. I would just use my own seasonings. However, my daughter was asked to make pasta salad for a family event. Her husband wanted mom?s recipe that called for the name brand, but when we went shopping she could not afford it (nearly $10 for the two bottles required to make the salad!). This was a lifesaver! Her hubby and everyone else was very happy with the result.
I can't make enough of this stuff! It is soooo good mixed with Italian dressing and poured over a big garden salad or pasta salad. For pasta or veggie salad, it is a million times better the next day because the favors just... WOW! I do make a few changes: I double the paprika, I reduce the amount of salt (I use about 1/8 tsp., sometimes less) and I reduce the black pepper by half. Oh, and if you're sensitive to sodium (or like me, just not a fan of salt), I'd suggest adding the salt after everything else has been mixed together, or at the very least, check the amount of sodium in your cheese and make adjustments to the amount of salt you add - this can easily become overwhelmingly salty if your cheese has a high level of sodium.
Wonderful!!! I am so glad that I found this. I used this on some cod before cooking and also I sprinkled this on my baked potato...have yet to try it in a salad which is next. I will be making this often. Thank you for posting. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag 2012.
This was really good added to the pasta salad I made this weekend. I got alot of compliments for an otherwise pretty basic recipe. Thanks!
Can't compare this because I don't know the original thing, but it tastes great! Used it for Lemon Crumb Cod Fillets and it worked wonderfully. Will make it again and try in other salads. Thanks for posting!
My act of defiance...eating healthy!
Great taste just like the original. I swapped out the cayenne for chili powder & left out the Romano. It's yummy on green salad, scrambled eggs so far & I will try it on garlic toast next. Thanks for the economical alternative.
Include me with the others who liked this blend. Very much like the original. Many thanks to Mystery Girl for posting . . . Janet
I don't know what I would do without this recipe. Salad Supreme is SO expensive around here, and I need it for my Old Bay Seafood Salad recipe. I make a 4x batch of this and keep it in the fridge. Only change I make is I sometimes use Parmesan (the GOOD kind:). Thanks for posting this recipe and sorry it took me so long to rate!
Thanks so much for this recipe!!! I am allergic to sesame seeds and now can make my own version of this seasoning minus the seeds!!
