It’s no secret that homemade potato salad is a big part of summer cooking. Here in the South, good potato salad accompanies every BBQ. Watkins used to carry premade Potato Salad Seasoning that made preparing homemade potato salad super-easy. Then it became a discontinued product. Several of my Watkins customers started asking me about Watkins Potato Salad Seasoning, and what Watkins spices they needed to make their own. Until recently, I didn’t have an answer.
Watkins Discontinued Products
Here’s the thing. Watkins Potato Salad Seasoning became very well-loved by all who used it, but it wasn’t a big enough seller to continue to carry it in the lineup. So, the heartbreaking decision was made to make this one of Watkins discontinued products. Simple as that.
Up until recently, the recipe/special blend of spices to use to create the Potato Salad Seasoning (and four other well-loved spice blends) has been kept pretty exclusive. But it’s now been shared with all of us who sell Watkins products, and I am excited to share the secret with my readers!
It’s no secret that Watkins has always used their award-winning spices in the Potato Salad Seasoning. Watkins is well-known and loved for the quality of their spices, and recently introduced 41 Organic Spices & Spice Blends. By using these spices in creating your own batch of Potato Salad Seasoning, you will be impressed by the potency & freshness of flavor, for sure.
Homemade Potato Salad Seasoning
So, now that I’ve got you all drooling for some homemade potato salad, the time has come to share the secret seasoning recipe! Are you ready?!
Watkins Potato Salad Seasoning
- 7 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 2 tbsp Watkins Organic Onion Powder
- 3-1/2 tsp organic ground mustard (or desired taste)
- 1/2 tsp Watkins Organic Garlic Powder
- 1 tsp organic ground celery seed
- 1 tbsp Watkins Organic Ground Black Pepper
- 5 tsp Watkins Organic Parsley
- 1 tsp organic tarragon
- 1 tsp organic horseradish powder (optional)
Add all ingredients to an 8 oz or larger jar. Shake jar to combine until well blended.
What’s the best thing to store any unused seasoning in? I personally love using my Pampered Chef One Cup Prep bowls for this. They’re the perfect size, seal up tight, and look so pretty on the shelf!
