Tuscan Herb Toasts with Chèvre, Arugula and a Fig Balsamic Reduction
If you’re not a fan of goat cheese, we recommend a crème fraîche or just cream cheese. Either way, your taste buds will dance with delight at the combination of these simple ingredients. The arugula gives the bite a peppery punch that is lovely paired with our Tuscan herb olive oil and the sweetness of the fig balsamic reduction. Serves 4 as an hors d’oeuvres.
Harissa-Seared Scallops with a Mango Balsamic Salsa
This dish packs a sweet heat made from a combination of our spicy red chili oil and our mango white balsamic — a combination inspired by the mango con chili treat. This would also work with shrimp or prawns. Serves 4.
Veggie-packed dishes are especially superb when made with the freshest ingredients you can find. Shuck and slice the corn from the ears just before sautéing; pop lima beans or edamame from their pods just before adding to the pan. Why? The sugars in corn, for example, turn to starch as soon as an ear is picked, so if you want sweet corn that bursts in your mouth, look for locally grown corn. Serves 4 to 6.
