Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Vege-Sal (Vegetable and Salt Seasoning Blend)
A few years ago the company changed this bottle, but don’t confuse this Vege-Sal vegetable and salt seasoning blend with Spike Seasoning
. I love them both for different uses.
I’m fairly organized about some things in my life, but I do tend to choose the items I feature for Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks by impulse, and recently I realized I hadn’t ever done an official pick for Vege-Sal, even though it’s something I grew up loving. I still remember as a young girl going on Sunday afternoon rides to my Grandma Denny’s house in Layton, Utah, and Grandma would always make popcorn seasoned with Vege-Sal. That was in the 1950’s, so it’s safe to say that this is a product that’s been around a long time!
Vege-Sal is a blend of salt and ground vegetables that I think adds a little extra something to so many types of savory dishes. I use it regularly to season rice or grains, eggs, soups, and of course, vegetables. It’s lower in sodium than regular salt, although it’s not for people who need to drastically reduce salt. (Vege-Sal has 355 mg. of sodium in 1/4 teaspoon, compared to 550 mg. sodium in 1/4 teaspoon of regular table salt.)
Vege-Sal is made by Modern Products, which also makes Spike Seasoning
, another one of my favorites. In Utah I can find Vege-Sal at most regular grocery stores. If you can’t find it at your regular store, you can definitely get it at a store like Whole Foods, or you can order Vege-Sal from Amazon.com
