Homemade Seasoning Mixes versus Store-Bought Seasonings
Need something to shake up your boring chicken dish and all you have are some spice bottles and all-purpose seasoning blend? Make this quick and easy Greek Seasoning Mix and take a trip across the Atlantic while you are eating!
I love making my own spice mixes. I used to buy them in the store but limited by the choices of pre-made ones to about 5 different varieties such as Cavender’s All-Purpose Greek Seasoning, in addition to the anti-caking agents and other chemicals, I started making my own. I even created my own hot spice mix when I hosted a “7 Deadly Sins” dinner as a party favor. I haven’t posted that recipe but it is coming soon.

This Greek Seasoning Mix will take you on a vacation to the Mediterranean with all the flavors of oregano, thyme, and especially marjoram! Marjoram is included in every spice jar/spice rack that I buy. I see marjoram in the aisle at the store and never really knew what it tasted like so I had to buy some. Oregano is closely related to marjoram so I wondered why we use both in a lot of spice mixes.
What is in Greek Seasoning and what are Greek Spices?
I had to look it up and see why I add Oregano AND Marjoram in Greek Seasoning Mix.
Marjoram and oregano are both from the mint family. Oregano and Marjoram leaves look a lot alike but their flavors and aromas are quite different. Oregano leans to a stronger, slightly spicy flavor profile while Marjoram tends to be more on the sweet side with floral scents. Both are perfect for sauces, marinades, and dressings but since Marjoram is “lighter” I would add it at the end of any cooking process to avoid destroying its flavor. Did you know that this Greek Seasoning is Whole 30, Paleo, and Keto compliant? It is also gluten-free!!
FAQ about Greek Seasoning:
- Q: Is Greek Seasoning Gluten-Free, Paleo, or Whole30 compliant?
A: Yes, it is all three! And this homemade mix doesn’t contain MSG! The best benefit of making your own homemade spice mixes.
- Q: Is Greek Seasoning the same thing as Mediterranean Seasoning?
A: They are basically the same only Mediterranean seasonings usually include cloves and cardamom. Greek seasoning contains marjoram that is not usually found in Mediterranean seasoning.
- Q: How do you store Greek Seasoning?
A: The best way to store any of your spices or spice mixes is in a glass container, air-tight, and in a dark and cool place. Obviously not next to the stove, on the counter top, under a window with full sun. Unless you are planning on using the entire batch in a week.
- Q: How long with this Greek Seasoning last?
A: If you store your Greek Seasoning as I talked about in the previous answer, it should last at least 6 months.
If you are looking for a new way to dress up your dishes, or even make a new salad dressing, grab the spice bottles in your cabinet and throw together this Greek Seasoning mix. It makes a great hostess gift too!
