A powerhouse of multi-faceted flavor, this blend is mouthwatering and deliciously addictive. A satisfying mix of citrusy lemon, rich red bell pepper, spicy cayenne and fresh herb makes for a beautiful dip inspired by Grecian cuisine.
Uses: Mix 1 tablespoon with 1/4 cup olive oil and let sit for half an hour to allow the herbs and spices to soften. A tablespoon of freshly grated parmesan cheese stirred in makes this insanely good. Toss with olives, tomatoes, feta cheese and cucumber for a delicious Greek salad, rub on fish or chicken before grilling, or serve with warm slices of fresh bread.
