  • Rub oregano with your hands to release its oils, then toast it in a small dry skillet over low heat for a minute or two. Add oil, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper and heat until just warm, about 1 minute. Transfer to a large bowl and whisk until well combined.



Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days; bring to room temperature before using.
