Greek Seasoning – The EASY Way!
Homemade seasoning mix are one of my secrets for adding a TON of flavor to food, with just a tiny bit of time and effort.
This Greek Seasoning blend is one of the most used seasonings in my cupboard.
The great thing about homemade seasoning is that it takes about 5-10 minutes to make (depending on how organized your spice cabinet is!) and then you can pop it in an airtight container and it will stay good for UP TO A YEAR!
So for 5 minutes of work you can have this delicious seasoning on hand for a year!… or until you run out which very well may be sooner because this stuff is just that good.
You can easily make a single batch of homemade greek seasoning, or if you enjoy it as much as me, you can make a double or triple batch in the same amount of time so you can always have it on hand.
How to use Greek Seasoning

All spices and seasonings in this blend are dried. If you only have fresh on hand, I would recommend either drying them to be used in this seasoning blend, or grabbing the dried version the next time you are at the store. Fresh spices do not work here.
- Kosher salt
- Dried basil
- Dried oregano
- Dried thyme
- Onion powder
- Garlic powder
- Onion flakes
- Dried dill
- Ground pepper
- Dried parsley
- Dried rosemary
Although this list does look a little lengthy, all of these are commonly found spices and there shouldn’t be anything you have to hunt down. You may even have every single one already in your spice cabinet!
- Key Ingredients! Cinnamon and nutmeg are the unexpected key ingredients in this Greek Seasoning Blend. These are generally associated with sweets, but used in this mix, their savory qualities shine! It perfectly balances with the mixture of traditional Greek seasonings to create a flavor blend that is really, really delicious!
- Mix to combine– There is no special magic here. To make this, you just dump it all together and mix it up. To make it even easier, you can use a mason jar or other container and dump, then shake. Then all you get messy is a couple of measuring spoons!
- Grinding is optional– In the blend of spices that make up the greek seasoning there are a variety of sizes, from ground to larger leaves like rosemary. You can combine them, but as they sit, the seasoning blend can settle so that it is harder to grab an even scoop out with every spice evenly distributed. To solve this you can:
- Shake or stir before each use – This is what I do
- Grind- Run it through a grinder, food processor, or blender to get the spices to a smaller consistency so that they combine evenly.
- Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place. When stored like this the Greek Seasoning should stay fresh for up to a year. Some also recommend putting it in the freezer to further extend the life but I have never found that necessary. I run out long before it would ever go bad.
- Double, triple, or more! This recipe can easily be scaled up to make a big batch of Greek Seasoning. This will allow you to keep it on hand for longer periods of time, especially when you start throwing it in everything as your “secret ingredient” like I do!
