Presto! A new infused olive oil hits the shelves.

We launched a tasty new infused olive oil this week, and if you get our weekly SpicyBytes newsletter, you likely have a decent guess what it might be.  Shameless plug: if you don’t get the SpicyBytes newsletter, sign up at the bottom of www.allspiceonline.com and stay in-the-know!

Presto! It’s Pesto! We’re bringing you the robust flavors of Italian pesto in our new Pesto Olive Oil.

Pesto (or pesto alla genovese) originated in Genoa Italy in the mid-nineteenth century and remains a staple in the region’s cuisine. It’s traditionally made by combining crushed garlic, European pine nuts, coarse salt, basil leaves, hard cheese like Parmigiano-Reggiano, blended with olive oil. Our infused olive oil version, however, is vegan and allergen free.

We enjoy this flavor brushed on chicken with a little salt and pepper before grilling, combined with our Traditional Balsamic to dress a caprese salad, and tossed with our favorite veggies prior to roasting them in the oven.

The Pesto Olive Oil also makes a great vinaigrette when combined with the Traditional Balsamic, White Traditional Balsamic, Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic or a red wine vinegar.

AllSpicer Rory suggests making yourself a delicious sandwich spread by creating an aioli using your favorite mayo recipe and adding a bit of the Pesto Olive Oil.

Pick up a bottle and let us know how you’re using it!
