DIY Greek Seasoning Recipe

Jun 28, 2020

The seasoning of many Greek recipes includes blending various dried herbs and spices together to create a yummy mix appropriate for lamb, turkey, vegetarian dishes, and more. Greek spice blends typically contain marjoram, which is not found in Mediterranean seasonings. And Mediterranean blends will often include cardamom and cloves which are not found in Greek blends.

Use this spice on hummus, salads, mix it with oil, vinegar, and lemon to make dressings, combine it with Greek yogurt, and lemon for a fresh dip for veggies. Store it in an airtight container away from sunlight and heat. Use 1-1/2 to 2 T of Greek seasoning per pound of meat, along with olive oil and lemon juice or zest.


1-1/2 T dried Mediterranean oregano

1-1/2 T garlic powder

1 T Kosher salt

1 T onion flakes

1 T dried basil

1-1/2 tsp dried dill weed

1-1/2 dried parsley

1 tsp ground black pepper

1 tsp dried marjoram

¾ tsp dried thyme

½ tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp ground nutmeg

Mix together all ingredients and store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
