Cilantro Roasted Onion Olive Oil


Marisolio’s Cilantro Roasted Onion is a supremely complex but flavorful extra virgin olive oil.   The robust flavor of the cilantro is balanced out with the sweet taste of roasted onion. It is a perfect complement for Thai, and Hispanic dishes.  I love to serve it with some Pineapple White Balsamic Condimento as a dipping sauce for sourdough bread. You will never find an easier appetizer!  You can also pair it  with White Balsamic Vinegar for a sizzling grilling taste.

Cilantro is also known as coriander, and is used often in Thai, Mexican, Chinese, Middle Eastern, and many other cuisines.  Surprisingly, cilantro has some medicinal uses as well.  It is loaded with anti oxidants, has been used to treat type 2 diabetes, can lower cholesterol, and has been used as a folk remedy to treat anxiety and insomnia!  And here is an interesting fact:  mice fed cilantro are less disposed to getting head lice. How about that?

Love cilantro?  Hate it?  It turns out there is a genetic disposition to liking it or not.  If you are wired not to care for the taste of cilantro,  it may taste soapy to you.  If you like it, you will not be aware of any such thing.  As for me, fortunately my brain thinks cilantro is yummy, so I use it as often as possible in my cooking.  I also find our Cilantro Roasted Onion olive oil very useful as a flavor enhancer when I am sauteeing vegetables to add to other finished dishes.

Cilantro Roasted Onion Olive Oil is currently on sale this month of October.  Don’t miss out on getting your 10% off!
