Oregano//The Spicy RD

Did you know oregano, also known as Origanum vulgare means “mountain joy”? Not only is it delicious, it also acts as an anti-bacterial and is a potent antioxidant too!

Greek Salsa with Tomatos and Fresh Oregano

Cherry Tomatoes//The Spicy RDIn addition to smelling simply divine, this Greek Salsa is the perfect topping for my Easy Vegetable Strata Recipe~this month’s Recipe ReDux contribution to all things “brunch” in honor of all the bridal showers, baby showers, and graduation parties taking place this time of year.

Oh, my goodness…I can’t believe that my sweet “little girl”, Miss SiSi, is graduating from 6th grade this year!  Do you remember your elementary school graduation???

The inspiration for my strata, comes from this yummy recipe at The Urban Baker that I have made for my family several times now.

For my own ReDux version, I’ve swapped out the meat for all veggies, cut back on the cheese a little, and added a delicious twist with my fresh Greek salsa.

Trust me when I tell you that the “strata” and the “salsa” pair fabulously together!
