Add Mediterranean flair to your menu with this amazing Greek Seasoning Blend.  Made from scratch it’s so much more flavourful than those you purchase at the store.    There are also a few “surprise” ingredients that are traditional to Greek Cuisine,but often omitted in recipes as they are less commonly used in savoury dishes.   Please trust me and don’t leave them out.   They truly make a difference!
