What is March known for? If it comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb, and vice versa. March 2 is National Reading Day. March 8 is National Women’s Day. March 14 is Save a Spider Day (seriously?). St. Patrick’s Day is March 17. Daffodil Day is March 28. March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month (get those colonoscopies!).
For me, the day I most look forward to in March is the Vernal Equinox, also known as Spring! Some fresh vegetables and fruits I love to look for in March are broccoli, lettuces of all kinds, artichokes, some early asparagus, and tropical fruits such as mangos, papayas, and pineapples.
Some Marisolio products you might enjoy this month are our Alfoos Mango Balsamic or our Pineapple Balsamic. These would be lovely additions to your spring green salads. As for our Extra Virgin Olive Oils, try adding some of our Eureka Lemon Olive Oil to your mayonnaise dipping sauce when you serve those spring artichokes. A drizzle of our Tarragon Extra Virgin Olive oil is a great addition to your steamed vegetables such as broccoli and asparagus. Whatever fruits and veggies you look forward to in the month of March, consider using some of Marisolio’s balsamics and olive oils to enhance the flavors.
If you are not familiar with these great products, we invite you to stop by the shop to do a fun tasting experience. Our staff can suggest lots of uses and pairings for these items so you get the very most out of your purchase. Marisolio Tasting Bar, 488 Main Street, Murphys, CA (209) 728-8853.
