didn't have seasoned salt - so looked up ingredients and added them by sight - celery seed, garlic powder, dry mustard, paprika, salt, white pepper -- wonderful!!!!
I have made this for a couple of decades, but never added salt. Many times, I make it as a dip, (not draining the pineapple juice). Ball or dip it's gobbled up quickly!
Our southern version of this recipe calls for red pepper for color and sweetness, NO salt, and locally grown pecans. At work we usually serve with Wheat Thins but Triscuits and fresh veggies are great too.
2 teaspoons of salt is way too much for this recipe. I had to add 1 more 8 oz cream cheese and some more pineapple to accomodate the salt. Anyone else think so? I will make it again but will cut way back on the salt.
