Last year, at my office, we had salad club every Thursday. There was a group of about 8 of us, and when it was your turn for the week, you would bring salad and fixin’s for the group. Then you could have salad for a few months and not have to bring anything. We actually took a little hiatus over the summer, and I have to work on getting the group back together. It was a great time to share a healthy meal, talk about things going on in our lives, and people brought great things. One of those things, was from my friend Kate, who left our company, but left a jar of Greek Seasoning she brought from home. It’s getting low, and I was starting to panic, because it tastes great on so many things. I saw the McCormick brand in the store, but thought I could probably make it myself. I searched the net, and I think I have found the replacement from www.cooks.com. Greek Seasoning
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. dried oregano
- 1 1/2 tsp. onion powder
- 1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. black pepper
- 1 tsp. dried parsley flakes
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
- 1 tsp. cornstarch
- 1 tsp. beef flavored bouillon granules
Combine all ingredients and keep in an airtight container. I don’t know about you, but I already had all these seasonings on hand, so it was easy and I didn’t have to go out and buy anything.Uses:
- Salad dressing: Olive oil, vinegar and Greek seasoning to taste.
- Sprinkle the seasoning on top of your salad.
- Potatoes: Olive oil, lemon & seasoning to taste. Bake or grill.
- Fish: Lemon and seasoning to taste. Bake or grill.
- Meat/poultry: Marinate with olive oil, lemon and seasoning. Bake or grill.
- Vegetables: Sprinkle with seasoning. Steam or grill
It’s such a versatile seasoning, once you try it, you will use it all the time, I love it!
