This oil has a beautiful, fresh, green herb taste. Basil and olive oil are two important ingredients in Mediterranean cooking and it was just obvious to us that the two fused would be wonderful. Notes: try it on a summer salad or caprice and let your taste buds travel to the shores of the Mediterranean. Great with Pesto, Bruchetta, Meat, Bread and Pasta. Pairs well with Blood Orange, Persian Lime or Lemon, or Golden Pineapple, Strawberry, or Traditional 18-Year Aged Balsamic Vinegar.
