Making basil oil is so simple, trust me you’ll want to drizzle it all over your chicken, fish, tomatoes, vegetables or with some crusty bread!
One of my favorite Italian restaurants, Luigi’s, sets out basil oil on the table with a homemade focaccia that’s so good you just want to drink it! I often ask them to serve it over grilled fish or pasta and I am in heaven. I was able to easily recreate it since the ingredients are few and simple. For best results, a good quality extra virgin olive oil such as DeLallo’s is a must!
According to DeLallo, many “extra virgin” olive oils are blends of substandard olive oils and some aren’t even the Italian product they say they are. Just because an oil is bottled in a particular country, it doesn’t mean that the olives are actually grown in that country.
