Italian Salt & Spice Blend for Meat, Vegetables & More
Tuscan cuisine is known for its simplicity, highlighting local ingredients and celebrating treasured dishes carried on from generation to generation. It's all about flame-kissed steaks grilled in the hearth, meltingly tender beans drenched in good extra virgin olive oil, slow-roasted porchetta flavored with wild fennel pollen and long-cooked vegetables (are you getting hungry yet?).
Inspired by the simple flavors of the Tuscan kitchen, Kitty Keller—founder of KL Keller Foodways—developed an all-purpose salt and spice blend. Hers starts with a base of fine Spanish sea salt, to which the quintessential Tuscan herbs are added: rosemary, marjoram, oregano and thyme. Dried lemon peel and a touch of chili flakes lend brightness and heat. Shh, now for Kitty's secret ingredient: dried tomatoes. Sun-ripened, dried and ground to a coarse powder, this special addition rounds out the mix adding richness and a delicate sweetness.
How to use
Once you open the jar, you'll find yourself reaching for this versatile flavored salt to season everything. Use to season steak before it hits the grill, mix with olive oil and rub all over a chicken pre-roasting, toss with vegetables before roasting or sprinkle over focaccia before baking.
Make an easy 5-ingredient sheet pan dinner using KL Keller Foodways' Tuscan Herb Salt. Rub chicken thighs with olive oil and season liberally with Tuscan Herb Salt. Roast at 400°F for 25 minutes and then nestle two bunches of cleaned, torn bunches of kale around the chicken thighs. Drizzle the kale with a healthy pour of EVOO, another sprinkle of herb salt and return to the oven for 10 minutes. Drain a can of white beans and spoon over the and around the kale and chicken. Continue to cook for another 5 minutes until the beans are heated through. Serve straight off the pan—and don't forget a nice glass of Montepulciano red wine!
