  • 1 clove garlic grated or squeezed through a garlic press
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano rubbed in palm
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice about 1 lemon, strained of pulp and seeds
  • 1/2 cup good quality olive oil


  • In a glass jar or container with a tight fitting lid, grate in a clove of garlic. Then measure and add in the oregano, salt and black pepper.
  • Pour in the (strained) freshly squeezed lemon juice and olive oil.
  • Shake. Pour. Swoon.
  • Store salad dressing in the fridge. Pull the dressing out 10-15 minutes prior to using to warm it up if the oil solidifies or simply run the jar under warm tap water.
