Mission is California’s most popular olive, producing light tasting oil known for delivering a mere hint of fruit and no spiciness.
    Tip: This easy to use oil will fit in almost anywhere and will be perfect with all of our balsamic or regular vinegars. If you are using dipping spices, this EVOO will let the flavors of your special blend stand out. Use Mission EVOO any time you want a light flavor.
