Greek seasoning

Greek Seasoning 2|Prep time: 5 min|Cook time: n/a|

Yields 76ml

Well, this recipe came about out of necessity. I couldn’t find decent pre-made Greek seasoning anywhere in my local┬ávicinity and I definitely needed it for the sun dried tomato and feta stuffed chicken breasts I was planning on making. I had a pretty good idea of the sort of herbs and spices that I would incorporate, but I had no idea as to the amounts. After a great deal of research on the net, this is the composite recipe that I came up with to suit my needs. Hope it works for you!

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1 teaspoon crushed rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon dill
  • 1 teaspoon majoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon mint
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon onion flakes
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Optional:

  • 1/8 teaspoon dried lemon peel

Usage:

There are many uses for this mixture ranging from poultry to pork to salads. Personally, I use this mixture on my sun dried tomato and feta stuffed chicken breasts, but you could also try using it on other chicken dishes, pork, rice, and even in a Greek salad if you feel so inclined! I generally make my own Greek salad from scratch using some of the spices included in this mixture, but I would imagine this mix would work wonderfully as well. Of course you’ll still need to add some extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, and balsamic vinegar to your salad.
