Greek seasoning

Greek seasoning

Greek Seasoning is a blend of a few herbs and spices. A versatile herb mix to have at hand during the BBQ season. I prefer not to add salt in any spice mix, this way you can control the amount of salt you want in the dish.
Ingredients: (makes about 3 1/2 tbsp)
1 tsp basil
2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp thyme
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp each onion and garlic powder
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp mint
1/3 tsp each cinnamon and nutmeg
  • Mix all the above together and store in an air tight container.

You can use this seasoning in the following ways-

Souvlaki and gyros- Use it as a dry rub marinade for grilled chicken, fish or pork. Click here for recipe of chicken souvlaki.

Burgers - Use it in burger meat. Click here for recipe of Greek lamb burgers

Salad dressing - Blend with red wine vinegar and salt, whisk in olive oil to get the perfect Greek dressing for your salad. Top with olives and feta. Here is the recipe.
