Marisolio is so pleased to offer our customers certain discounted products each month. We take pains to offer things that have been shown to be favorites with our patrons. In an effort to encourage you to try some of these products (besides the great price), we like to suggest ways in which you might use them.
Basil Olive Oil: This fresh herbal oil is a natural for any Mediterranean style dish, but you can’t beat it drizzled over fresh sliced tomatoes from the garden. Add some fresh mozzarella and a few fresh basil leaves and you have an easy and delicious salad.
Wild Fernleaf Dill Olive Oil: You must try this delicate dill infused olive oil basted over grilled salmon. Nothing else but salt, pepper and a drizzle of lemon juice is needed to have an easy feast. We also enjoy it mixed with lemon juice and used as a dressing over tiny boiled red potatoes.
Barnea Extra Virgin Olive Oil: When you want your olive oil to be the star of the show, Barnea may be just what you need. This particular oil won a highly coveted Gold Medal at the New York Olive Oil Show. It has a peppery finish and has notes of parsley and fennel. Impress your guests by offering it as a simple bread dipping oil.
Sherry Reserva Vinegar: This vinegar has the true flavor of cask aged sherry. Try it as a dressing over Cannellini Bean Salad. Two cans white beans, drained; 1/4 c. diced red onion; 1 T. lemon juice, 1 T. Sherry Vinegar, 2 T. Olive oil of choice, 2 T. minced fresh herbs, salt and pepper. This makes such a great side dish.
Neapolitan Herb Dark Balsamic: We love this drizzled over eggplant slices hot off the grill. Let it soak in and serve the eggplant immediately or at room temperature. This is a terrific make ahead side dish for your next barbeque.
Gravenstein Apple White Balsamic: Try this in a marinade for grilled portobello mushrooms. Combine in a zip lock bag 2 T. Gravenstein White Balsamic, the juice of a large lemon, 2 tsp. Worcestershire, 2 T. Olive Oil. Marinate mushrooms up to six hours. Grill until done, top with diced tomatoes and sliced smoked mozzarella cheese. Keep on grill until cheese melts. This is so good, you must try it!
