Greek seasoning blend
We love making our own spice blends as they're a great way to save money, avoid unhealthy additives in store-bought blends, and customize the taste to our own liking.
These Greek spices are delicious on chicken, fish, and roast veggies. When you need a quick dinner, sprinkle some of this Greek seasoning onto a baking sheet of chicken and chopped vegetables and pop them into your oven. Having delicious spice blends on hand makes dinner a breeze to prepare.
Just like our Italian seasoning, this Greek seasoning blend is one we always have in our pantry. And when we run out, it's super easy to make with just seven spices.

We don't add salt to our seasoning blends because the amount of salt you use will depend on the recipe, the type of salt you use, and your personal preference. Omitting the salt makes this Greek seasoning blend a lot more versatile.
Spices stay fresh for about 2 years – this includes the time they've spent on your grocery store's shelf! So how long this spice blend will last depends on the freshness of the spices you use. Note: while spices don't do bad or become unsafe to eat after 2 years, they simply lose their flavor.
To best preserve their flavor, spices should be kept in a sealed container away from heat and light. A pantry or cupboard is the perfect place for storing spices.
Recipes to use Greek seasoning
Greek seasoning is a wonderfully versatile spice blend. You can use it to add a Mediterranean flair to all of your recipes. It also works very well in place of Italian seasoning!
Chicken – Use 2 tablespoons per pound of meat – it will look like a lot! Try it on our baked chicken thighs or baked chicken breast, omitting the spices (but not the salt!) listed in those recipes and using this instead.
Fish – This spice blend is great on both salmon and white fish. Sprinkle a tablespoon on our lemon garlic baked fish!
Roasted Vegetables – Toss 2 pounds of chopped root vegetables with oil, salt, and 2 tablespoons of this Greek seasoning blend and roast them at 420 Fahrenheit for about 35-40 minutes.
Rice – Add 1 tablespoon of this spice blend per 1 cup of uncooked rice. Add it to the pot when you add the water and it will give your rice a wonderful flavor.
Marinade – Try a Greek version of our lemon garlic chicken marinade by omitting the spices listed in the recipe and adding 2 tablespoons of this Greek seasoning blend instead. Don't forget to add salt!
Dip – Mix 2 teaspoons plus a pinch of salt into 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt and let it sit in your fridge for an hour for the spices to soften.
