Make your own Greek Seasoning

Greek Seasoning
Seasonings are expensive at the store. Organic seasonings even more so. Creating the right blend for ethnic dishes can be challenging, especially when they require multiple herbs. This recipe is easy to make and you can make as much as you want at a time. The recipe below will make about 1/2 a cup.

Combine the following:

3 teaspoons sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cracked black pepper
3 teaspoons garlic powder
3 teaspoons onion powder
3 teaspoons dried parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
1 1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary
1 1/2 teaspoons dried lemon peel
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons fennel seed
3/4 teaspoon marjoram leaves

3/4 teaspoon dried mint(spearmint is best)

I store in an old glass spice jar. This is great on chicken and lamb. Also great combined with Oil and vinegar for a dressing. Experiment!
