Olio Verde pressed with Lemons!

Outstanding Olio Verde pressed with Lemons

Olio Verde al Limone was introduced to the U.S. with the 2008 harvest, and it has returned with a bang. (What’s Italian for bang?) This flavorful gem has recently been named a Silver Finalist in the SOFI Awards. The top awards, the Gold Awards, will be named at the Fancy Food Show in NYC in June. UPDATE: Olio Verde al Limone won a GOLD AWARD on 28 July 2010 at the Fancy Food Show!

Available at Olio2go.

Olio Verde al Limone

More inspiration in a bottle!  The arrival of Olio Verde al Limone at Olio2go was enough to change our dinner plans.  Suddenly inspired by a fresh new flavor, the simplest cheese ravioli set the stage for this lemony goodness.  Each pasta bowl was filled with a few ravioli, a dollop of ricotta, a drizzle of Olio Verde lemon oil, and a dusting of freshly ground sea salt and pepper. More ethereal than a squeeze of lemon, “al Limone” brought forth clear flavors demonstrating that the simplest presentations can result in the most satisfying of meals.

With a salad of field greens (in a bowl rubbed with garlic and tossed with Santisi Novello (that 750 ml bottle lasts a long time!), Manicardi 12, and freshly ground salt and pepper). All this meal needed was a little plate of cookies and a bowl of fruit for dessert.
