Entertaining over the Labor Day Weekend? It doesn't have to be hard. Using extra virgin olive oil is not only a healthy alternative, but olive oil recipes will definitely hold up better in hot weather. We've put together a Labor Day menu of great recipes and links, so you can get those shopping lists made and get your party started.
Labor Day BBQ Inspiration thru Olive Oil Recipes
We aren't suggesting you prepare all of these items -- especially since my keyword is "simple" -- but if you try one recipe for each course, it will be a breeze. Other simple Mediterranean appetizers include grapes, nuts, olives, and cheeses.
Good Doesn't Have to Be Fancy
Our goal is to demonstrate that an entire meal can be prepared with olive oil. In fact, my husband even drizzles olive oil over his oatmeal in the morning (as I look askance at him.) One of my quickest recipes is to use a box of the Ghiradelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix with our Orange-Infused Olive Oil. People love them and always think I slaved over them.
We invite you to leave us a comment, and of course, if you need olive oil, you know right where to find it!
