I have a friend who I think is awesome, Maria Bell... Louisville's Greek Celebrity Chef inspired this. I once took a cooking class from her and this is my version of the Greek salad. She stressed that real oregano has a very nice fragrant smell. If you can't smell the oregano it's old or bad quality don't use it. As Maria would say ... SO GOOD FOR YOU!!!
