Only 11 dried herbs and spices make up this Homemade Greek Seasoning Blend! Herbs and spices like oregano, basil, dill and garlic and more! Use this seasoning on chicken, seafood and in dressings, marinades and dips! Who needs store bought?
Making your own seasoning blends (like this homemade Greek seasoning blend😏) is a great way to use up those spices and dried herbs. You know the ones that you’ve probably purchase for 1 recipe and will eventually have to toss out because you only needed a teaspoon and now you basically still have a full jar left over.
It happens to all of us and it doesn’t have to be this way. Making your own spices only takes a few minutes and saves you a ton of time and in the long run, money too.
Taco seasoning was my first go at DIY seasonings and it has since morphed into an obsession. As of late, I have quite the line up of homemade mixes for both baking and in savoring cooking. Rarely do I have to throw out full jars of spices because of it. My husband encourages me to start my own spice mix company, (name it looloo’s spices – don’t ask) because I make them so often.
However, I can’t help but feel that kind of defeats the purpose of using the spices we already have, right?
To Make This Homemade Greek Seasoning Blend You Will Need:
- oregano (dried)
- basil (dried)
- thyme (dried)
- dill (dried)
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- onion flakes
- lemon pepper
If you keep a
hot mess organized spice drawer or cabinet, you probably already have these in you kitchen.
What Are The Best Spices For Making Your Own Seasonings and Spice Blends?
There’s no right or wrong brand. I will first say, buy what you can afford. However, not all spices are created equal as you tend to get what you pay for. Currently I use Morton & Bassett (not sponsored) because I find their spices to be top notch in texture, color and flavor. I love and respect what their company stands for not only with charitable work but also quality control. With that said some other wonderful brands I’ve used over the years are Simple Organic, Frontier Co-op and Penzys.
In a clean jar with a tight fitting lid, measure and add in 2 tablespoons dried oregano, 1 tablespoon dried basil, 1 tablespoon dried dill, 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes, 1 tablespoon dried parsley, 1 tablespoon dried rosemary, 1/2 tablespoon dried thyme, 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder, 1/2 tablespoon onion powder, 4 teaspoons lemon pepper seasoning and then 2 teaspoons paprika.
Next, stir to combine and then you’re all set to go! However, before using, you’ll want to stir as the dry spices will sink to the bottom of the jar.

THANK YOU in advance for your support!
I’m excited to try this!! While I use a different homemade taco mix – we LOVE your fajita mix! Please introduce me to new recipes to use the Greek mix!
I most definitely will, Annie!
Thank you for yet another delicious spice blend! I included all of the ingredients listed and it absolutely tops my have.gone.to.for years. purchased Greek seasoning, which has always been so good! I also loved the fact there was no added salt and it was not missed at all! My former brand has salt as the first ingredient listed! Not that I am opposed to salt, but rather like to ‘watch’ my consumption of it.
The only additional step I took was to give the blend a couple of quick wee blitzes in my spice grinder to break down the woody Rosemary, but that is a personal preference. That was it!
Between the recipes I have found in your book and your postings, Laurie, you are contributing to some very happy tummys!
Thank you so much!
