Americans are all about flavor, especially when it comes to making mealtime an exciting experience. In fact, 61 percent love getting creative in the kitchen, according to the recent Lawry’s “What’s Your Flavor” survey.

 

If you are part of the nearly two-thirds of Americans who say they try a new flavor at least once a month and you’re looking to really pump up the flavor in your dishes, go beyond salt and pepper and use a blend of herbs and spices to help you create flavorful meals with confidence. You can find an assortment of expert blends from brands like Lawry’s, which offers varieties like seasoned salt, lemon pepper seasoning, and garlic salt to add a bit of a zest to your meal. These blends help simplify preparation and add a whole lot of flavor.

 

Here are a few easy and convenient tricks for using seasoning blends:

  • Great for sides, salads and soup – just sprinkle on seasoned salt or garlic salt to punch up the flavor on pasta, rice and potatoes
  • Shake more flavor on chicken, pork and seafood by adding lemon pepper seasoning before and after cooking for that flavorful kick you’ve been looking for in your meals
  • Mix in Lawry’s Seasoned Salt with meat for mouthwatering burgers with an extra zing of flavor that will have everyone running to the table
