Greek oregano reaches a height of almost two feet when it's in bloom. Like all culinary oreganos, its flower is white. Its leaves are coarse, oval, and fuzzy. Leaves are about five-eighths of an inch long and are dark green when fresh and light green when dried.
Greek oregano is used in tomato sauces, with meats, fish, cheese, egg dishes, salads, and cheeses and with vegetables like tomatoes, zucchini, and green beans. Oregano is an essential ingredient of countless Mediterranean recipes.
