Where to Use Organic Greek Seasoning
You can use this seasoning blend on a variety of foods, from the meat end of the spectrum all the way to the vegetable end.
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.
If you want to make your own 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 our Greek Seasoning. Greek yogurt is the yogurt of choice here because it is packed with protein and gives an authentic flavor, but you could substitute another plain yogurt if you so desire. Just keep in mind that it will not be nearly 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 good amount for about a pound of meat. Place your meat in a large re-sealable plastic bag and be sure that your 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.
