Oregano (Origanum Vulgare)

Oregano grows like a little bush and will take over your window box if not pruned and trimmed. The leaves are very pungent so very few can go a long way. If you find you have too much oregano growing it lends itself beautifully to drying, therefore it can keep for a very long time. If you have limited space, this is a "must have" herb, as it's not often found in you local store and when you do find it, it can be quite pricey.

Basically Oregano can be used in any dish calling for a mixture of fresh herbs. Use dried oregano sprinkled on top of a tomato and onion salad drizzled with some olive oil for a quick side dish. For an extra special occasion try:
