Olive Tree Olive Oils & Balsamic Vinegars

I found a hidden gem. Well it was hidden from me {at least}.

The Olive Tree  is a fab-u-lous specialty shop located at the Dayton 2nd Street Market. They offer a variety of specialty and flavor-infused olive oils and balsamic vinegars.

All of their products are naturally flavored, with no artificial ingredients of any kind.

The olive oils originate from Morocco and are cold-pressed extra-virgin. They offer seven olive oil flavors including: Roasted Garlic, Rosemary, Truffle, Persian Lime, Jalapeno, Blood Orange, and Sundried Tomato & Parmesan. They also offer a specialty traditional unflavored olive oil imported from Spain.

Their balsamic vinegars originate from Modena Italy and are aged 12 to 18 years. They offer eight balsamic flavors including: Chili, Chocolate, Raspberry, Cinnamon Pear, Fig, Traditional, Coconut, and White Strawberry Peach.

yum in my tum. tum. 🙂

As you’re all well aware… I despise salad dressings and marinades with an ingredient list that looks more like a bottle of chemicals than real food. Yes…I know I’m a bit dramatic (aren’t all women?), but why do we need disodium guanylate, disodium inosinate, potassium sorbate, etc. etc. etc. in our food?

Instead of drenching your greens with a chemical-laden dressing, why not dress your salad with naturally flavored oil and vinegars?

I’m personally loving the Jalapeno Olive Oil over Mediterranean-ish salads and grilled veggies, and a mix of the Coconut Balsamic with Persian Lime Olive Oil over summer-fruit-ish salads. 🙂

I encourage you all to pick up a bottle!

Readers… What are your favorite flavor enhancers for summer? Fresh Herbs? Vinegars? Spices? Oils? Etc?
