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!

On my menu this weekend is Caprese Pasta Salad, Marinated Lamb Rack, and of course, this olive oil with some grilled bread. Doesn’t that just sound absolutely delicious?!

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!
