Olive Oil Essentials: Three Recipes Starring Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar

Last week, we cleared up the confusion about infusion and talked about some killer oil and vinegar combos courtesy Aventura Olive Oil Co. Now we’re taking these perfect pairings to the next level. The folks at the olive oil shop have supplied us with four exclusive recipes designed to draw out the flavor dynamics at play. Here are some creative cuisines starring Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. Find the recipes by clicking on the links below.


1. Truffled Cauliflower Gratin

This savory side dish (ok, I’d call it a main course) features the Aventura White Truffle Olive Oil and Gruyere cheese.

2. Honey Ginger White Balsamic BBQ

The summer months are pending and we know what that means, time for BBQ. But these glazed ribs are more than your average backyard picnic. Treat your taste buds this summer with this recipe featuring the Aventura Honey-Ginger White Balsamic.

3. Blood Orange Baklava

And for dessert? Blood Orange-Fused Olive Oil Baklava. The construction of the complicated (delicious!) treat is a culinary adventure in itself, so why not add some orangey undertones for a creative summer spin on the classic?
