Are you ready for Cinco de Mayo?! May 5th is only a few weeks away and I hope you are ready for a fiesta because I am kicking off a week of recipes that will help you celebrate deliciously! Starting with this super easy homemade lime salt! Now, you may be asking “What do I put lime salt on?” After today’s post, I bet you will find yourself asking, “What else can I put lime salt on?!”
Lime salt is SO easy to make! The first step is to zest your lime. My friends at Kuhn Rikon sent me some of their awesome kitchen products to try out and the Dual Grater has been rocking our kitchen! It collapses for easy storage so it doesn’t take up a ton of space in our drawer – love that!
I used it to zest a lime for this recipe and I also used it for the orange zest in my homemade orange vanilla sugar, I can’t wait to use it for Parmesan cheese and chocolate and I really wish I had it when I was grating carrots for my vanilla wafer cake. This grater is getting a workout in our kitchen already and bonus: it’s red – my favorite color 🙂
My bright green lime was zested in no time and I was ready to stir it into the sea salt and add my Lime essential oil. (I sliced my little naked lime to add to water and iced tea, so it didn’t go to waste!)
Lime Salt for Cinco de Mayo
- 1/2 cup fine sea salt
- 20 drops of Young Living lime essential oil
- zest of one lime
Zest one lime. (You can slice the little naked lime into slices for your water!)
Stir lime zest and lime essential oil into the salt. Stir well and break up any salt that clumps together.
Store in an airtight container.
Now, you know that I can’t leave a mason jar full of something giftable without a cute little gift tag, right? If you want to make some lime wedge gift tags for your lime salt, here is how I did it:
- Cut a circle from kraft card stock.
- Cut the circle at about the 2/3 point so the wedge is generously sized 🙂
- Punch a small hole in the tag.
- Stamp “lime salt” on it with alphabet stamps and a black ink pad
- Add some green ink around the edges
- Tie the lime wedge gift tag around the mason jar with green twine.
