This isn’t your basic grocery store olive oil. This is the real deal sourced from all over the world. Right now, the olives come from Australia, South Africa, Peru and Chili. In January/February, they will procure oil from Spain, Italy, Tunisia, Greece, Spain and California. Olive This! has the perfect oils in every flavor you can dream of. Pair with an excellent vinegar or cracker to make the perfect hostess gift (such a great alternative to a bottle of wine!), teacher gift, neighbor gift, mother-in-law – basically everyone on your holiday list! Their gift baskets are DIVINE!
This locally-owned and operated olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting store is conveniently located in The Shops at Piper Glen (near Trader Joe’s) on Rea Road. Olive This! offers a ‘try before you buy’ experience with over 45 varieties of the finest imported extra virgin olive oils and all-natural aged balsamic vinegars. Think of this happening spot for your next girls night out or book club. All of their oils and vinegars are imported to the store and bottled locally on site.
Since I first stepped foot in this amazing store, I have stopped buying salad dressing altogether. I just buy a few pairings and toss with a salad, chicken, fresh fish, bread, you name it and I’ll drizzle on it. I can promise you, you’ll never go back to store bought EVOO or vinegar ever again!
We asked the ladies at Olive This! to give us their favorite pairings, because they are the experts!
Here are their faves:
Tuscan Herb EVOO with Traditional 18 year aged balsamic (a staple in my house)
Lemon EVOO with Cranberry Pear white balsamic (I call this my fancy dressing!)
Garlic EVOO and Black Mission Fig dark balsamic
Blood Orange EVOO with Chocolate balsamic
Seasonal top sellers include:
Blood Orange EVOO with Maple balsamic
Tarragon EVOO with Red Apple dark balsamic
