SALAD DRESSING (VINAIGRETTE) PREPARATION

Combine 2 parts Extra Virgin Olive Oil with 1 part balsamic vinegar. Whisk together and serve. To emulsify dab in a small amount of dijon mustard or light mayo and continue whisking. Oil and balsamic will become creamy in appearance. Refrigerate remaining amount for up to 3 days.

MARINADE PREPARATION

Combine equal parts Extra Virgin Olive Oil with equal parts balsamic vinegar. We recommend preparing just enough to cover the protein. Place in zip-lock bag and squeeze out air. Place in refrigerator for at least six hours.

Note: For Fish, Seafood (catches from the water) we recommend rubbing the Extra Virgin Olive Oil into the raw protein in the absence of the balsamic vinegar for approximately 30 minutes. We recommend NOT using balsamic during the marinade step to prevent the acidic balsamic from breaking down the delicate protein.  Instead, combine Extra Virgin Olive Oil and balsamic and use to drizzle over the finished product.

HEAT APPLICATIONS

Applying heat to any oil or balsamic may slightly reduce the original flavor profile. To bring back any lost flavors prepare a small amount of fresh marinade and drizzle over the finished product.
