This is a blend that is herbaceous and slightly sweet, with a tiny bit of bite from the black pepper. Use on a variety of foods, from the meat all the way to the vegetables.
Organic Greek Seasoning is great to make sauce for gyros. It also makes an incredible marinade for Mediterranean style chicken, beef, lamb, pork, or fish. Any grilled food, shish-ke-bobs especially, taste excellent with this seasoning blend as a partner.
To make gyros sauce, an easy recipe is to mix 2 cups of plain Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup chopped cucumber, 2 tablespoons of diced onion and 2 tablespoons of Greek Seasoning. Greek yogurt is the yogurt of choice here because it is packed with protein and gives an authentic flavor, but plain yogurt can be substituted (it will not be as thick as it would be with Greek yogurt).
A simple recipe for a meat marinade is 2 tablespoons Greek Seasoning, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of warm water. This is a sufficient amount for a pound of meat. Place meat in a large re-sealable plastic bag and be sure that the meat is covered evenly with the marinade. Leave the marinating meat in the refrigerator for 8-12 hours before cooking.
Greek seasoning is also incredible on popcorn, roasted vegetables, and on pasta topped with a little olive oil.
