Olive Oil Dressing

As many of you know, I am a big advocate of using organic and all natural products. I wanted to share with you, that I am also a Bzzagent. Bzzagent is a word of mouth company that lets you try free products at no or little cost as long as you write about and share the product samples or coupons with others and give an honest opinion about how those products measured up. I am always thrilled to receive something for free, and it's even better when the product is all natural. Recently I signed up for the Filippo Berio Olive Oil campaign. I must say this is one of my favorite campaigns; I mean who doesn't like eating right? I received a bottle of Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO), a handy jar opener, a olive oil measurement and butter conversion magnetic chart and a stack of coupons/recipes to share with my friends and coworkers. I use olive oil all the time by sauteing on low heat, making oil dips, marinades, and dressings as well. Many are not aware that you should only use EVOO as a dip or dressing, as it has a low burn point. Other refined olive oils can be used at a higher temp (although I do not recommend), but still should be cooked on low to retain the nutrients in your food and prevent free radicals and oxidation from building up. I prefer their organic cold pressed version, but I only buy it when I can afford it. I give this product 5/5 stars.

To your health!
