It’s Memorial Day! This has been such a great long weekend. After months of staying inside, the weather is warming up, and I’m ready to celebrate with Lemon and Garlic Herbed Olive Oil!
With a lot of Aperol Spritz in hand, I’ve been eating this delicious herbed olive oil all weekend.
What can I use this olive oil for?
It’s perfect for fresh bread, on a cheese board, or drizzled on pasta.
It’s just really great on anything!
If you’re growing a garden, pick some fresh basil, rosemary, or mint, and serve with this olive oil. You’ll have a great presentation and another pop of freshness.
One tip for this recipe – in the words of queen Barefoot Contessa, use GOOD extra virgin olive oil! If you use your best olive oil, it will really make a difference in the flavor of the oil. High quality extra virign olive oil is meant to be enjoyed exactly in this way: raw, with fresh herbs and delicious flavor!
I hope you have a great weekend full of great drinks, food, and company.
Happy Memorial Day!
