Oregano Leaf (Cut and Sifted)
Botanical Name: Origanum vulgare
Dried oregano is one of the first ingredients that you would think of to put into a lovely tomato-based marinara sauce for use over pasta. A sprinkle of oregano on top of a green salad that contains robust cheese crumbled on top and olives makes the vegetables all come alive on the palate. Fresh ripe summer tomatoes, roasted eggplant rounds and mozzarella are beautiful sliced, then arranged on a platter and sprinkled with extra virgin olive oil, black pepper and some oregano. Beautiful new red or fingerling potatoes coated in olive oil and sprinkled with oregano, black pepper, salt and a little paprika, then put into the oven to roast, make a glorious side dish for your next chicken dinner.
