Flavored salts are a great way to add an extra boost to recipes or finished dishes, without adding extra calories or fat. These blended salts are available in the supermarket, but making your own is simple, and better than store-bought. This recipe combines fresh rosemary leaves with both coarse salt and kosher salt in the food processor, making prep quick and easy. Homemade rosemary salt also makes a great edible gift for the gourmets in your life—especially since it has a lengthy shelf-life.


  • 1 cup packed fresh rosemary leaves

  • 1 cup coarse salt such as sea salt

  • 3 cups kosher salt

  3. Pulse on and off about 8 to 10 times, or until the rosemary is blended into the salt. The texture should be similar to table salt; it will be damp and look almost like wet sand.

How to Use

This herbal salt can be used in a variety of ways, from sprinkling on cooked eggs, avocado toast, and fresh tomatoes. It is also the perfect seasoning for all types of potatoes, roasted and grilled chicken, roasted vegetables, pork roast, and lamb chops.


Coarse salt is key to this recipe, so make sure to use sea salt, or another type of coarse salt. You can use all sea salt, if you like, instead of adding the kosher salt.
