The two California Olive Ranch olive oils in the tasting kit are big winners. The Arbequina is a Single Varietal oil, and tastes very fresh and fruity with flavors of tropical fruit and fresh artichoke. It's great in salad dressings or pestos -- and try it atop ice cream!
The Miller's Blend has a fruity beginning balanced with a bit of pepper at the end. It would be great with dishes containing blue cheese or strong, spicy flavors. (A great tip for Saturday's menu planning!)
And now...a giveaway! We'll be giving away a One Year Supply (6 bottles) of the winner’s favorite olive oil flavor: either Arbequina or Miller’s Blend. Anyone can win. We want to hear from you on Twitter and Facebook!
