This homemade Greek Seasoning recipe can be mixed together in minutes and adds authentic Greek flavor to any recipe. Delicious, versatile, and easy, this all-purpose blend can be used on chicken, lamb, beef, vegetables, kebabs, salads, and more.
In a small bowl or jar, add basil, garlic powder, Greek oregano, black pepper, cinnamon, dill, marjoram, parsley, rosemary, nutmeg, and thyme. Add salt to taste (I like 1 teaspoon, or omit entirely). Store in an airtight container.
Greek oregano: A member of the mint family, Greek oregano tends to be the most savory and earthy, compared to the milder Italian oregano or more pungent Turkish oregano. There is also Mexican oregano which has notes of citrus and mild licorice as it is a relative of lemon verbena. You can use your preferred oregano in this blend.
Salt: Control the salt in your recipes by omitting it from the blend. When you cook with the Greek seasoning, you can salt your meat, vegetables, or anything else at that time and use just what you need.
Yield: This recipe makes just over 4 tablespoons of Greek seasoning, or about 1/4 cup.
Storage: Store covered in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to 6 months (or longer, but potency will decrease after 6 months).
