This Cajun spice mix makes a great addition to your spice cabinet and is delicious as a dry rub, mixed into mayonnaise, or added into a dressing.
One way to keep our taste buds happy and satisfied without feeling like they are deprived of anything is to add spices and herbs to dishes. I love keeping favorite spice blends on hand so that I can quickly add them meats, poultry, seafood, veggies, and even to dressing to kick my salad up a notch or two.
This Cajun Spice Mix definitely fits the bill for helping me toward my goal for a healthier me in 2012. It’s definitely a spice blend to keep stocked and ready to use. I doubled the recipe to have a little nearly 1/2 a cup to store in an airtight container. Now, I’m armed and ready!
