1 teaspoon paprika, preferably Spanish smoked paprika, hot or bittersweet

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1/4 cup red-wine vinegar1

2 cup extra-virgin olive oil 

*Place garlic in food processor and pulse until finely chopped.  Add parsley and next five dry ingredients and pulse again again until finely chopped.  Place mixture in a bowl; stir in oil and vinegar.
