What Kind of Oregano Should I Use in Greek Salad?

Reader Electra so kindly shared her wisdom for this recipe from growing up in a Greek family. Here is what she said about using oregano in Greek salad:

“Unless you can get oregano from a source that truly sells Greek oregano, don’t add it. The “American” oregano is awful! Bitter, and just not the right tatste, I’ve since found that Greek oregano is more like a wild marojoram. The stuff at the regular grocery stores just doesn’t do it. Since many of us have access to order online, I would suggest that, or a good ethnic grocery store in your area (not Mexican as it’s a different oregano) as a source for true Greek oregano. It really does make a difference.”

    Most of my life salad has always been Greek salad as I grew up in a Greek family. Seems lot of other people like it, too!

    I love your recipe because it does not have lettuce in it and that truly is a Greek salad. Many restaurants will offer Greek salad, and it’s usually with lettuce. Kudos to you for getting it right!

    Can I add one suggestion? Unless you can get oregano from a source that truly sells Greek oregano, don’t add it. The “American” oregano is awful! Bitter, and just not the right tatste, I’ve since found that Greek oregano is more like a wild marojoram. The stuff at the regular grocery stores just doesn’t do it. Since many of us have access to order online, I would suggest that, or a good ethnic grocery store in your area (not Mexican as it’s a different oregano) as a source for true Greek oregano. It really does make a difference.

    • Hi Electra, Thank you so much for this comment and your kind words!

      The Greek oregano tip is so greatly appreciated. I’ve added it to the post (with credit to you) and now I’m on a quest to find Greek oregano locally. 🙂

      Thank you again!

        Krinos has a good one you can probably find online. Greek oregano is also wonderful on roast chicken with lots of lemon juice. My mom would roast chicken with chuncks of potatoes and everything had the lemon and oregano on it, really wonderful. It’s also good to put on a broiled steak, and it’s essential for lamb chops or any type of roast lamb.

  • Well this totally makes me want to find the real Greek oregano and try it! I’ve never liked oregano in any food (spaghetti sauce, pizza, etc.) so makes wonder if trying a true Greek one will change my mind. Sounds like it! LOVE Greek salad so I’m anxious to make this recipe and also love it is not just a bowl full of lettuce. Thanks so much!!

    • Hi Tracy, I’m so happy to hear you’re excited to make the recipe! 🙂 Electra’s comment was definitely a game-changer – I’m really looking forward to trying Greek oregano too!
