Allium is the fancy (read: scientific) name for the onion and its many relatives, including garlic, scallions, leeks, and chives. There are alliums that you won’t find in the kitchen—ones that add bright purple and pink flowers to spring gardens—but we tend to keep to culinary endeavors rather than horticultural ones. And with that in mind, we’ve created a new seasoning salt to celebrate these flavorful alliums: Trader Joe’s Onion Salt.
It may be called Onion Salt, but it has a few other alliums that, in our opinion, make this seasoning truly special. Granulated onion makes up the majority of this spice, but there’s also granulated garlic, minced onion, kosher salt, green onion, and dried chives.
Those last few ingredients give the spice its eye-catching green color and an extra kick of flavor. Most other onion salts on the market don’t pack so many alliums in, making ours truly unique.
Now comes the tough part: choosing just how you want to use our Onion Salt. In addition to using it in place of regular salt when you’re looking for a bit of extra onion-y flavor, try any one of the following: Shake on top of your morning eggs. Mix with sour cream or TJ's Greek Yogurt for a tasty onion dip. Sprinkle on sweet potato fries, french fries, corn, or a baked potato. Season hamburgers, steaks, and seafood. Add to soups, sauces, marinades, or dressings…
At $1.99, a 2.2 ounce jar of Trader Joe’s Onion Salt might just change your life—or, at the very least, spice up your spice rack.
