The Greek goddess Aphrodite created aromatic oregano as a symbol of joy and grew it in her garden on Mount Olympus. Certainly, oregano is one of the most popular flavours of all the herbs. Rubbed Oregano has a pungent, herbaceous and slightly resinous flavour and aroma. It is a delicious flavouring in a marinade with lemon juice and olive oil, used for grilled chicken, fish, lamb, haloumi cheese, or kebobs such as souvlaki. Use in vinaigrette for a traditional Greek salad and it is an important flavouring in Italian tomato sauce.
