Flavor Your Life Shares Healthy Appetizer Recipes that are Prepared with Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) July 19, 2013

On July 19, Flavor Your Life, a European Union funded campaign dedicated to providing the latest in industry news and health information about European extra virgin olive oil, shares simple appetizer recipes that are both delicious and healthy.

Olive oil is valued for its ability to enhance the taste of food and promote good health. It is very versatile and is capable of being included in appetizers, main courses and desserts.

Flavor Your Life offers these 2 delicious appetizers made with olive oil that are quick and easy to prepare:

  •     Three color salad - Start with 4 tomatoes, capers, lemon juice, cucumbers, salt and pepper, fresh basil and extra virgin olive oil. Cut all the vegetables and place the green ones on a plate first. Cut up buffalo mozzarella and place in the middle of the plate. Top off with tomatoes and sprinkle the basil, capers and lemon juice on top. Add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper.
  •     Bruschette Surf and Turf - Start with large Tuscan slides of bread, raw shrimp, tomatoes, 2 hardboiled egg yolks, green beans, basil, carrots, celery, garlic, lemon juice, onion and a fruity tasting extra virgin olive oil. Chop the beans, boil and drain.

Make a broth by boiling celery, onions, carrots and garlic. Remove the vegetables after 10 minutes and add the shrimp to the broth. Cook the shrimp for 5 minutes and add to the beans after it has been strained. Make a dressing with the extra virgin olive oil, egg yolks, parsley and lemon juice. Mix everything together and serve on bread. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil over the top to finish.

Carol Firenze, author of The Passionate Olive, speaks about the types of flavors that extra virgin olive oil can add to dishes. “You can create harmonious flavors by pairing extra virgin olive oil with food,” she says. “Use a mild intensity olive oil for dishes that require a subtle flavor, like fish, pesto, eggs or when baking. Use a medium intensity olive oil for dishes that call for fruity flavor enhancements, such as salads, grilled chicken, and vegetables. Use an intense olive oil for dishes that call for bold flavor, like pasta sauces, soups and grilled meats.”

Flavor Your Life, a campaign supported by the European Union, Unaprol and the Italian Ministry of Agriculture, is dedicated to providing the latest in industry news and health information about European extra virgin olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil enhances the flavors of your recipes while providing health benefits. Flavor Your Life campaign, the voice of olive oil production quality control, aims to educate consumers so they can make informed decisions when purchasing olive oil.
