Egg Dress-Ups

If you look in your pantry right now, chances are you’ll find a box of Windsor Salt. I have several boxes in mine and I use them in various ways around my home. Salt is something we use in our recipes, cleaning tasks and even for health. My Grandma June always told us to gargle with salt water any time we had a sore throat.

Windsor Salt is one of Canada’s oldest and most well-known brands. I bet I could walk down my street knocking on doors and my neighbours would also have a box of Windsor Salt in their home too.

At the grocery store, you may notice that Windsor Salt products look a little different. They’ve had a brand refresh featuring a new logo and product packaging. It still has that iconic blue castle that we associate with the brand, but it has a more modern, fresh look. Here’s a peek!

I typically use Windsor Table Salt in my recipes so using Windsor Kosher Salt was a new experience for me. It’s more coarse than regular salt, but can also be used to enhance the flavour of your food. You can also use it in brining and rimming cocktail glasses.

This recipe would be great to serve at a party and create a “salt bar” to serve with hardboiled eggs. Guests can sprinkle on the salt mixture of their choice. It’s a quick recipe to whip up for unexpected guests.

You’ll need a box of Windsor Kosher Salt and several spices from your spice rack to prepare Chili Salt, Herb and Garlic Salt and Paprika Salt. It’s so easy to make and the hardest part is boiling the eggs. You can prepare those ahead of time so everything is ready to serve.

I served them for lunch this week with the salts sprinkled on top. My favourite was the Herb and Garlic Salt and John said his was the Paprika Salt. You’ll have quite a bit leftover so you can use the salts in other recipes. The next day I made tuna sandwiches and added the Herb and Garlic Salt into the tuna mixture. Delish!

After making these flavoured salts, my mind is brimming with other combinations to try. How about a citrus salt with Windsor Kosher salt and lemon zest? Yum!
