When it comes to simple ways to mix up the flavors in your meal prep routine, seasoning blends are where it's at! I've already shared my favorite Jamaican Jerk Seasoning and Homemade Fajita Seasoning recipes with you and now we're going Greek!
Actually these seasoning blends are already on the site in this post with 7 Dry Rub Recipes, but I thought it was time to give them their own post and show you how versatile each blend is.
For some reason, I don't have any recipes on the blog that use this Greek seasoning blend. That's really strange because we actually love this one, and use it regularly on fish, chicken and veggies. It is the perfect way to add a bit of flavor without any calories. Look for some more Greek recipes coming your way using this blend!
By preparing this easy Greek seasoning blend recipe yourself, you are avoiding unhealthy chemicals and other additives you might find in store-bought blends. No MSG, no anti-caking agent, only ingredients you trust.
You can prepare this Greek seasoning blend and store it for a whole year! Although it doesn't last more than 1-2 months at our house. Bonus? You probably already have these spices in your cupboard.

How to make your own Greek seasoning blend
Like the other spice blends, it is so so so easy! You need 7 simple spices and you most likely already have them hiding in your pantry. Once you mix them all together, this Greek seasoning recipe is good in the pantry for up to a year! I doubt it will last that long, though 😉
Let's check out the different spices you'll need:
- Greek spices- basil, oregano and dill bring those Greek flavors to this blend. Since these herbs are bulkier than the other spices in this blend, I like to crush them with the handle of a wooden spoon a bit before mixing them in. This just helps them mix in better.
- Aromatic spices- garlic powder and onion powder are essential in this Greek seasoning blend. They bring so much flavor, and without them it is extremely bland.
- Savory- salt and pepper bring the savory flavors to this blend. The play of the herbs + savory flavors is what makes this Greek spice blend!

How to use this Greek seasoning recipe?
We use this seasoning blend in so many ways. I am definitely going to add more recipes to the blog and add them in here, because it is so versatile!
- fish- this Greek seasoning recipe works well on salmon, but is even better on a white fish like tilapia. Sprinkle it on generously and don't forget to add in a few lemon slices as well!
- chicken- we love this Greek seasoning recipe on chicken! Toss the chicken in a little olive oil, sprinkle on around 1 tablespoon of the seasoning per chicken breast, and tuck some lemon slices on and under the chicken breast. We bake this up at 425°F for 25 minutes. Perfect with a big Greek salad!
- potatoes- OMG. So so so good on roasted potatoes. I'd toss in olive oil, add the Greek seasoning blend, and roast up for 25-45 min (will depend on the size of your taters) at 425°F. Squeeze on some lemon juice just before serving!
- roasted vegetables- particularly cauliflower, zucchini and bell peppers. Same directions as for the potatoes, but cut the roast time to 15-25 minutes.

How much of this Greek seasoning blend do I use per pound of meat? I use 1 tablespoon per chicken breast, so this is roughly 2 tablespoons per pound. You want to use this seasoning aggressively, and it might look like too much. Don't forget a squeeze of lemon juice or some fresh lemon wedges for baking!
What are some other ways I can use this Greek seasoning recipe?
- Add some olive oil and lemon juice and use it as a marinade (I would add 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 tablespoon Greek seasoning per boneless skinless chicken breast)
- Add it to the cooking liquid for your rice or quinoa to give it some pizzaz (I would add 1 tablespoon per 1 cup uncooked rice or quinoa)
- Add it to some yogurt to make a tasty greek dip for veggies.
