Oregano and Sugar Snap Peas

With all the rolling thunder and flashes of lightning on Sunday, the sun peaked out and shone upon one of my favorite herbs, golden oregano. I just couldn’t resist a quick dash out onto the deck to take a picture. This oregano is a real winner; it holds up throughout the summer and behaves well in a pot. A few snips and the flavor is mine for the taking.

I chose to put it in a pot, but, it does well in the ground and spreads its golden goodness, as such herbs are wont to do. If we weren’t always spraying to deter the deer, this oregano would certainly make it into my garden.

Have you ever tried oregano with sugar snap peas? Olive oil, salt, pepper, and some chopped up golden oregano is all you need, though some chopped tomatoes can be added. Mix with peas and refrigerator for an hour or so to let the flavors mellow. It keeps for several days, but, doesn’t usually last that long here.

Do you have a favorite summertime dish that uses oregano, or some other herb you pluck out of your garden?
