So here's the challenge with this clone recipe: get the right ratios for nearly 20 different spices, and come up with a way to get the same lemony tang that makes the real Mrs. Dash the tasty salt-free seasoning blend we've come to know and love over the years. Sure, we could use powdered citric acid, or sour salt. But then we still need to figure out the "lemon juice solids" part. Ah, but wait, there's citric acid and lemon juice solids in Kool-Aid unsweetened lemonade drink mix. It's perfect! Add a little of that drink powder to the spice blend and we have a clone that in a taste test could fool even Mr. Dash.

      Mrs. Dash
    • Instructions

      1. Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and stir well. As you stir, crush the leafy spices for a finer blend.

      2. Store the spice blend in a covered container or a sealed shaker bottle.

      Makes about 2/3 cup.

      Tidbits: It's best to use a mortar and pestle to crush these sometimes tough little onion and vegetable flakes to about the size of rice, before adding them to the mix. If you don't have one of those handy kitchen tools, you may also use the back of a spoon and a small sturdy bowl.

This is great! I can't belive that they have this here! I have kidney diease, so I'm not allowed to have too much salt. Mrs dash is a great substitute!

I love this recipe! I printed it out ages ago and lost my printout. I'm so glad that it is still here. I can't buy the Lemon Mrs. Dash anymore (did they stop making it?) It's my favourite. I've made this before and I have used it all up. It's that good. Time to make more... and not lose my copy of this recipe.
