*If you like a little less crunch to your vegetables, warm the vinaigrette before pouring over to slightly blanch the veggies.
*This recipe is also fabulous when you substitute the Oregano Vinegar with either: Thai Lemongrass Mint, Neapolitan Herb, or Jalapeño Balsamic Vinegars.
*On the oil side, try using Wild Dill, Herbes de Provence, Gremolata, Wild Rosemary, or Tuscan Herb Olive Oils
