Olive oil, a key ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine, has been used for many purposes for centuries. Rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, also known as the "healthy fat", people from the Mediterranean region have a longer life expectancy and lower risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke compared with people of North America and Northern Europe. The rest of the world has caught on to this beneficial oil and it is now used worldwide. We have added the flavor of Basil to olive oil, a natural compliment. Great to use in recipes, as a salad dressing or as a dipping oil for some crusty french bread. Add some balsamic vinegar for a tangy touch.
This is gourmet made easy.
