It goes well with poultry but also in many more recipes.  It is very easy to make and 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.

I don’t use dried garlic or onion, as I prefer to use fresh ones in the recipes I make.

So, take out your mortar and pestle (or electric spice grinder) and make your own Greek spice mixture!

You won’t regret it.

Once you make this Easy Homemade Greek Seasoning Mix, be sure to store it in an airtight container.
