This Pasta Salad Seasoning Mix makes a big batch so you’ll be ready for summer picnics. Use three tablespoons of this seasoning mix per one pound of pasta salad. Just the right seasoning, every time!
Ahhhh, picnic season. Picnics are one of my favorite things about summer. What’s your traditional picnic food? When I think of a classic picnic, I think hamburgers, potato salad, pasta salad, baked beans, chips and watermelon. Add some sunshine, warm temperatures, a cool breeze, family and friends and I’ve got myself a fabulous summer evening. Oh yeah, and some homemade ice cream would be nice, too.
When I was growing up, my mom always used McCormick’s Salad Supreme seasoning in her pasta salad. Even though Italian dressing has all kinds of zesty flavor on its own, adding this seasoning in spices things up a bit. For years I bought the little bottles of Salad Supreme, but they just don’t last long for the amount of pasta salad we make each summer. I always ended up running out and not having any when I needed it. I found this recipe for pasta salad seasoning mix and within 5 minutes had a big batch (2 cups worth to be exact) of seasoning to keep on hand in the fridge.
This seasoning makes pasta salad stand out! If you have your own favorite pasta salad recipe, you’ll use three tablespoons of this seasoning per one pound of pasta.
Try it….your family and friends will love it!

This is the spaghetti salad seasoning I always use. I mix a big batch, but leave out the parmesan, so it stays shelf stable. Add the parm fresh when making the salad.
Regular paprika or smoked paprika?
I love the sound of your pasta salad seasoning. But I can not have anything with tiny seeds in it, due to diverticulitis issues. I am new to trying new things to eat and spicing things differently and currently do not have a lot to choose from on my shelf’s. So my question is, can the seed spices in the pasta seasoning be bought in a ground up version? Thank you
I found this mix way to salty….. will cut the amount of salt next time I make it 🙂
I truly appreciate you sharing this seasoning blend. I too used to buy Salad Supreme by the case because I use it in everything!
Do I need whole or ground celery seed? Do you use white or black poppy seeds? And how long does this seasoning keep fresh (because of the parmesan)? I`m so craving for your classic pasta salad and dont want to do anything wrong on it…
Thanks in advance+hungry greets from Germany!
This is different. I don’t have a pasta salad dry seasoning mix in my recipe box. Thanks for sharing. Pinned.
Thanks so much for sharing with the Let’s Get Real party.
Homemade seasonings are so economical. This one will be delicious this summer!
Do you need to add olive oil or mayo or something other than the pasta and the dry mix?
