  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 small garlic clove, pressed through garlic press

  1. Make dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, garlic, and 2 tablespoons water. Stir in oregano, if using; season with salt and pepper.
