This is meant to mix up so it is on hand to change-up the seasoning for 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.

It is great to season chicken, pork, fish, vegetables, tomato sauces for pastas.

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.


Herbs: Thyme, oregano and rosemary

(makes about 1/4 cup of seasoning)

  • 2 tsp dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp dried Mint
  • 1/2 tsp dried Thyme (powder or leaves)
  • 1 tsp  marjoram (or increase Oregano if you do not have)
  • 2 tsp dried minced onion
  • 2 tsp dried minced garlic
  • 1 tsp dried Parsley
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
  • 2 tsp dried Basil
  • 1 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 TBS Paprika
  • 1 tsp dried Dill
  • 1 tsp finely chopped dried Rosemary
  • 1 tsp fresh Ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp Kosher Salt

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.

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