It’s Dilly Salt-Free Seasoning Copycat

I ❤️ dill! Years ago I found a salt-free seasoning by McCormick called It’s Dilly. I was in heaven.

Then, like all good things, it came to an end. McCormick quit making it. 😭

In 2017 I stumbled onto a copycat recipe which is close. So I tweaked it a bit and love it. Happiness again! 😃
