Schilling Salad Supreme Seasoning
This orange-colored spice blend has been perking up salads, pasta, potatoes hamburgers and vegetables for years now, but I’ve never seen a homegrown clone for the stuff. Time to change that. While it’s obvious that sesame seeds are a major part of this blend, you may not know that the main ingredient is Romano cheese (it’s tough to tell there’s cheese in there since the paprika dyes it orange/red). It’s a clone that’s very simple to make, just be sure to store it chilled. You might even want to keep the seasoning in an empty shaker-top spice bottle. And if you’re in the mood for some tasty pasta salad, just check out the tidbit below that comes right off the bottle of the original product.
2 tablespoons Romano cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons sesame seeds
1 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds
1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
dash cayenne pepper
1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.
2. Pour blend into a sealed container (such as an empty spice bottle) and store chilled. (http://www.topsecretrecipes.com)
