Make easily your own Greek spice mixture, to add a little extra flavor to your Greek dishes and save money.
It makes a great gift too!
It goes well with poultry but also in many more recipes. It is very easy to make your own spice mixture. You can season chicken, fish or other meat or add it in marinades.
If you don’t like any of the spices, just leave it out.
Many store bought herb and spice blends can be expensive, and a lot of them contain additives, anti-caking agents, or MSG.
So, take out your mortar and pestle (or electric spice grinder) and make your own Greek spice mixture!
You won’t regret it.
