Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in a small jar and shake to combine.  Alternatively, place ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. 

Notes

Fresh Lemon Juice - do not use bottle lemon juice!  Keep some fresh lemons around and this easy citrus press and you'll have fresh lemon juice whenever you need it. 
Extra Virgin Olive Oil - use a good quality oil, not your everyday cooking olive oil.  I like to try different brands that I find at Home Goods or Marshalls. 
Oregano - in almost all cases I prefer fresh herbs over dried.  Oregano is the one exception.  I think the dried has so much more flavor. 
Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper - any kind of salt will do as long as it's not table salt, which tastes so flat.  We keep a pepper grinder filled with black peppercorns right next to our salt bowl. 
Note - this recipe uses a traditional 3 parts olive oil to 1 part lemon juice.  You can use play with the ratio of you want a stronger lemon flavor.
