1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Saute bacon until crisp. Drain and crumble into bowl with corn and potatoes.
Whisk oil and vinegar in a small bowl to blend. Season with salt and pepper. Add bell peppers, cheese, onions and oregano to the bowl containing the corn, potatoes and bacon. Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat.
