David’s Condiments grew out of a personal tragedy and very real health concerns. David lost his father to complications after cardiac surgery, and then watched his father-in-law survive the same surgery just weeks later. When his father-in-law was placed on a strict low sodium diet, the whole family suddenly became much more aware of salt content in foods and became careful label readers. Having identified a lack of low sodium gourmet seasonings on the market, David worked to develop his own, for his family’s use. Following raves from family and friends, David’s Condiments was born and the line greatly expanded.
The recipes for these seasonings are all low sodium, with no added salt and no artificial preservatives. The flavour comes from the various herbs and spices used, and you would never know there’s no salt in your meal!
At the event we were treated to an array of meat, seafood and vegetable dishes, all made with David’s own seasoning mixes. A dash of seasoning, a splash of olive oil, and on to the grill. Easy and delicious.

I had a hard time determining which course was my favourite. I loved the grilled prosciutto-wrapped asparagus done with the Special Steak Rub. It’s a really versatile mix, reminiscent of Montreal Steak Spice, without the salt and preservatives. We usually grill our asparagus with oil, salt and pepper, but I’ve told Hubs to try this run out next time. The striploin, my favourite cut, was awesome. The rub gave a great taste but didn’t mask the flavour of the beef. David recommends letting your steaks sit at room temperature for about 45 minutes before grilling. Don’t marinate, but add a splash of olive oil while resting. Then sear the steak before adding seasoning to seal in the natural juices. It was divine!
