To turn a Bloody Mary into a seasoned salt, we combined ground sun-dried tomatoes, Tabasco, Worcestershire, and celery seeds with kosher salt. The result is a tangy, savory seasoning that’s great for sprinkling on seared or grilled chicken or scrambled eggs. And of course it’s ideal for rimming Bloody Mary glasses.
Special equipment: You will need a coffee or spice grinder for this recipe.
What to buy: We used Diamond Crystal brand kosher salt for this recipe. The crystals of kosher salt vary across brands, so if you use another brand, be sure to measure by weight or else the ratio of flavors in the recipe will change. Diamond Crystal is available in most grocery stores.
Sun-dried tomatoes come packed dry or in oil and can be found at most grocery stores—in this recipe we used dry-packed. If you find the julienned variety, you don’t need to thinly slice them.
