Oregano is an aromatic herb. Toast dried oregano leaves lightly in a pan and add them to your favorite chili or taco recipe. Drizzle olive oil over a hunk of feta cheese that's been topped with oregano leaves and serve with olives.
Oregano's most prominent modern use is as the staple herb of Italian cuisine. Its popularity in the U.S. began when soldiers returning from World War II brought back with them a taste for the "pizza herb", which had probably been eaten in southern Italy for centuries. There, it is most frequently used with roasted, fried, or grilled vegetables, meat, and fish. Oregano combines well with spicy foods popular in southern Italy.
