Products Used In This Recipe

  • Our finest balsamic vinegar from Modena, Italy. Produced in the traditional Modena style and aged at least 18 years in Oak barrels.
     
    Tip: Very diverse; thick and potent enough to be dripped onto a dish as a condiment and also balanced enough so it will pair well with one of our olive oils in a salad dressing. The acidity of our Traditional Balsamic vinegar makes it pair extremely well with our sweeter oils and with sweet foods, such as fresh fruit or even ice cream.

  • Our Tuscan Herb Olive Oil is an amazing proprietary blend of several herbs including Oregano, Basil, Garlic, and Rosemary. A total of 6 different herbs were selected, and then their essential oils were added in a precise ratio to a very high quality Olive Oil. The result: a superior Bread Dipping and Seasoning Oil that exhibits a superlative balance of fresh herb flavors. This is one our best-sellers!
     
    Tip: Pour it straight from the bottle for bread dipping, and to season grilled or roasted vegetables, meats and potatoes. Drizzle it on, after cooking or grilling to release the maximum amount of flavor. For a quick herb salad dressing, mix it 2 or 3 to one with our Premium White, Sicilian Lemon White, Aceto Balsamico di Modena 4 Leaf or even our Fig Balsamic Vinegar.
