1 tbsp oregano
4 oz. parsley

For the dressing:
6 oz. EVOO
Zest of half a lime

I am 100% Northern too. It is just in the past 3 or 4 years that I have been introduced to Southern favorites like black eyed peas and collard greens. I really feel like I missed out on a lot of great food for most of my life so I am trying to make up for lost time now :)

Tnx for the recipe. I make a similar thing with ancho puree in the dressing.

If you are ever in Boston and want good southern eats, try Bob the Chef's in the South End. Redbone's collards and succotash are also real good.

Thanks Jenny. I will have to check out Bib the Chef. I have never heard of that one. Redbones I know well :)

This recipe and the chimichurri steak and sauced are all recipes from Fireflys restaurant in Marlboro and Framingham. I took a cooking class with the owner and these were a few of the things we made that are now in my regular rotation :)
