Some of the ingredients in the list may not be readily available at your supermarket, they can be purchased online at Amazon, or I also listed substitutions.

This is meant to mix up so it is on hand to change up your easy week night dinners.

This is a great base for a salad dressing, mixed with sour cream/yogurt for a dip or Mayonaise for an easy sandwich spread.

You can make up a batch and easily store the dried herbs in an air tight container or in a zip lock bag with the extra air removed.


MIX all in a food process and pulse to combine.  If you don’t have one, that is ok.  The food processor turns this more into a powder which in this case I like better. But it works just fine mixing the ingredients in a bowl.

Good on seafood (salmon), poultry with fresh lemon juice squeezed on during cooking.

Tzatziki / Raita Dip

  • 2 TBS Dill spice blend (from above)
  • 16 oz Plain Yogurt or Sour Cream
  • 3 Scallions, sliced
  • 1/2 cup english cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup roma tomatoes, seeded and diced

Combine all in a bowl, cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.  Stir, tasted and adjust with more seasoning if necessary.

Great with warm Naan bread or Pita bread, as a vegetable dip or as a crunchy topping on baked potatoes.

Have fun experimenting. Check out this page for additional Spice Ideas and Links
