Right on!
Hey, by the way, I add Mrs. Dash to cottage cheese also - I agree - it tastes great!

Of course I want to know!!! How long?! I discovered Mrs. Dash spices eons ago, but only started using them in cottage cheese around a year ago.

Also, I found a great tip online about how to get lots of the salt out of the cottage cheese. (I've always found it too salty and also too wet - I used to buy pot cheese in NY and FL, which is much drier and has very little salt, but can't find it here in NC). Anyway, now I drain the cottage cheese through a mesh strainer. You do lose some volume, but it's worth it to me - it tastes so much better.

About 25 years ago! I found a recipe for a cottage cheese dip and it added season salt. I had the Mrs. Dash and made a second dip with it. Anyway, it was the first year Mrs. Dash hit the market.

Lowrey's Seasoned Salt. Cheap versions just don't have that right mix. I like it for my sauted summer squash with onions, pimentos and garlic.

Speaking of seasonings...
I'm having some trouble finding smoked salt locally. I've checked my local Vons and Ralphs and Albertsons. I guess I'll order some online. They've also stopped selling Pappy's Choice Original Seasoning at stores around here, so I have to order that on the net too.

I like Pappy's reduced salt the best.50% less salt.

My two grocery store favorites are Lawry's and Cavendar's Greek seasoning. I do an annual foray to Madison (or, if that isn't possible, to the catalog!) for Penzey's and always try something new. My latest "finds" with them have been for salads: Sicilian salad blend, green goddess, and creamy peppercorn. The latter two I mix with mayo and either buttermilk or yogurt, the Sicilian I just shake on a salad made with olive oil and vinegar or lemon juice -- or, it is really good on pasta that's been tossed with some olive oil.
