Tuesday at the (Herbal) Table: Oregano
We love Greek food in our household! This means we use a lot of Oregano. My favorite way to use it is on a plate of authentic Greek Feta cheese (very difficult to find here), drizzled with good olive oil and sprinkled with oregano. Yum! Add a good loaf of bread, and a few tomatoes, and that's a meal in itself.
When it comes to growing oregano, I'm afraid I haven't had a whole lot of success. Herbs in the garden have a tendency to spread and take over, so I put them in pots, but our dry climate often leaves them with not enough water. I may have to try to put them in our front yard or another place away from the vegetable garden, and try again.
One easy Greek dish I like to make this time of year is an egg dish with (garden) zucchini and feta cheese. I first saute cubed zucchini and onions in olive oil until slightly soft.
