- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon oregano

- 1/8 cup olive oil
- Into a bowl add a pinch of sugar, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and oregano, pour vinegar on top of spice mixture. Whisk in the canola oil, top off with olive oil and whisk very well again. Taste. For a milder flavor add in a bit more oil, for tartness, add a bit more vinegar.

Dressing will keep fresh for over a week.
