Basil Olive Oil
Fresh, green, and herbal. Basil and olive oil are two integral ingredients in Mediterranean cooking and it was just obvious to us that the two would be wonderful together. Try on a summer salad or caprice and let your taste buds travel to the shores of the Mediterranean.
Suggested Pairings: Oregano White Balsamic, Traditional Style Balsamic Condimento, Pomegranate Dark Balsamic Condimento, and Champagne Vinegar to name just a few.
