How to Maximize your Olive Oil Gifts

Use it as a Salad Dressing

One of the best ways to incorporate olive oil into your diet is by using it as a salad dressing. Simply mix it with some balsamic vinegar, herbs, and spices for a delicious and healthy dressing. You can also use it as a base for homemade vinaigrettes or drizzle it over roasted vegetables for added flavour.

Use it for Cooking

Olive oil is a great alternative to butter or vegetable oil when cooking. Its high smoke point makes it suitable for high-heat cooking methods like sautéing and frying. You can also use it to roast vegetables or as a marinade for meats.

Make a Dip

Olive oil can be used to make a delicious and healthy dip. Simply mix it with herbs, spices, and your choice of ingredients like roasted red peppers or sun-dried tomatoes for a flavourful dip. You can also use it as a base for hummus or pesto.

Use it for Baking

Olive oil can also be used in baking as a healthier alternative to butter or vegetable oil. It can add moisture and richness to baked goods, and its subtle flavour won't overpower other ingredients. You can use it in cakes, cookies, and even bread.

Why My Mother's Olives and Oil?

My Mother’s Olives & Oil provides honest olives harvested, bottled and produced in small batches from olives that are grown within the mountainous and rich soils in Sparta, Greece. The yield produces high quality oil from the Koroneiki olive. Our Kalamata olives are jarred in that same oil, providing consumers with a unique flavour profile that cannot be found elsewhere. 

Olive oil offers numerous health benefits and can easily be incorporated into your daily routine. Whether you use it for cooking, as a salad dressing, or as a dip, this versatile oil is a must-have in any kitchen. And for a unique and thoughtful gift, consider creating an olive oil gift basket for your loved ones. With its many benefits and delicious flavour, olive oil is truly a gift that keeps on giving.
