Oregano is a rich source of Vitamin K and Omega-3’s. However, what first brought my attention to this aromatic herb was McCormick’s free recipe booklet I picked up in the grocery store. It’s a mini flip-book, centered around the antioxidant value of specific herbs and spices.
Antioxidant POWERHOUSES in order of strength:
Some recipes included are Mango-Blueberry Cobbler, Orange-Ginger Beef Stir-Fry, and Citrus Salmon. Mmm!
In my hunt for more recipes using oregano, I came up with this delicious Greek salad.
It calls for lots of flavorful oregano which makes for a meal like you’d find in a restaurant.

5 Cups Romaine Lettuce, torn
1 Cup Red Onion, thinly sliced
1 Cup Cucumber, skin removed, quartered and sliced
1 Cup Tomatoes, sliced
1/2 Cup Black Olives, pitted
1 Cup Crumbled Feta Cheese

2 T Lemon Juice
1 T Red Wine Vinegar
3/4 tsp Dried Oregano or 1 toothpick dipped into Edible Oregano Essential Oil and swirled into the dressing.

***(I use oils EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. Learn more about why I need them here.)***

1/2 tsp Salt
2 T Olive Oil

Combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside. In a small bowl, combine first four dressing ingredients and slowly add olive oil, whisking constantly. Pour dressing over salad mixture and toss. Garnish with optional pepperoncinis.
