This Dill Seasoning Blend is a delightful mixture of various herbs that will enhance the flavor of your dishes. The mixture is made up of a few readily available herbs. You probably have them all in your pantry!
Sprinkle this mix over a creamy potato salad, scrambled eggs, deviled eggs, popcorn, or fries. I mixed it into a sour cream for an easy dip. Mix it with olive oil for a chicken, fish, or veggie marinade.
This mixture is full of flavor and has none of the fillers you often find in commercial brands. And it will cost you far less than a pre-made blend.

These notes are here to help make this recipe a success; they cover some but not all ingredients. For a complete ingredient list, check out the recipe card below.
- Dried Dill: Often called Dill Weed, this is a great herb to use with fish and chicken. As it has such a fine texture, the dried is just as good as the fresh when cooking with it.
- Dried onion flakes: You want flakes of onion rather than onion powder. If you only have the powder, then use 1 tablespoon.
- Dried minced garlic: You want dried minced garlic rather than garlic powder. If you only have the powder, then use 1 teaspoon.
- Sea salt: I like to add salt to my spice blend for extra flavor. But remember not to salt the meat/fish when marinating it. Feel free to leave the salt out and salt your dishes separately.
- Dried chives: These add a mild onion flavor to the blend, but you can leave them out if you have none.
- Celery salt: Feel free to use extra salt if you have none on hand.

- Add Herbs: Add extra herbs like dried basil or tarragon to the mix.
Storing your homemade seasoning
Keep the dill seasoning in an airtight container in your pantry or storecupboard.
Check the expiration dates on your herbs before you make the seasoning. If any are coming to the end of their life, they will dictate how long you can keep your dill seasoning for. So, for example, if your onion flakes have 6 months left, the blend will have a 6-month shelf life.
Dried herbs don't go bad; they lose flavor and aroma. So your blend will still be useable after this time, but it might taste less intense.
