This is meant to substitute for that rather expensive Greek seasoning in the yellow and red can.

We use a LOT of Cavender's in this house, and this seasoning blend is just as good-- in fact, it's better! Per the optional instructions, I blended the mix into a fine powder (using a food processor). Freshly blending the dried herbs and spices in small batches makes for a wonderfully pungent and flavorful seasoning for just about anything. I considered making a large batch of it, but I like the idea of making the suggested amount as needed; it'll last about a week in our kitchen, and it's totally worth making a new batch every few days in order to get that "just ground" flavor. I used this recipe as a seasoning for grilled chicken breasts today, and the flavor was fantastic. I'm fairly confident we won't be buying the big "C" again any time soon. Thanks for a great recipe!

This was... Odd. Very odd. Made it as directed. The nutmeg and cinnamon were by far the dominant smells of this before using and after cooking. Read More

I was looking for something close to the blend at one of our favorite local restaurants, and this is wonderful! Put a few pinches of this on a plate, and add some olive oil, and swirl to mix together. Use as a dip or spread for some homemade crusty sourdough bread, and you have a treat! Read More

Yum! I realized half way through making Kalamata Lemon Chicken that I was out of Greek seasoning, and after going to the market only to realize they don't carry it, I thought I was SOL. Thank you All Recipes and the cook who submitted this recipe. I made this seasoning true to the recipe, didn't change a thing. This recipe saved dinner! ;) Everyone loved it! Read More

I needed Greek seasoning to make 'Greek Pulled Pork' from AR. I like making my own seasonings as I can control what goes in them. This worked nicely on the pork and I have some left for other recipes. I did not blend in a grinder for a finer texture. I just mixed everything together and put in a shaker spice jar. Read More

I made this for another recipe on this site "Greek-Seasoned T-Bone Steaks with Cucumber and Tomato Salad". Not only was it easy but it was so good! I highly recommend this in place of a premixed one any day! Thanks for the recipe:-) Read More

I'll never buy the pre-made stuff again! This was really easy. I had everything on hand but the dried parsley - didn't miss it. I do think that the cinnamon is overpowering. The next time I make it I will cut that in half. Otherwise this is a keeper! Read More
