Ways to Use Basil Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

  • Eggs. Cook eggs in basil olive oil. It’s an easy way to liven up eggs with fresh herb flavor.

  • Caprese Salad. Amp up the fresh basil flavor on a Caprese salad (sliced tomatoes and mozzarella di bufala with fresh basil and olive oil) by using basil oil instead of plain olive oil.

  • Pasta Sauce. Use it as a simple pasta topping, just as you would plain olive oil. Drizzle over pasta and toss.

  • Baked Potatoes. Instead of butter, drizzle basil olive oil into baked potatoes and add some fresh grated Parmesan cheese.

  • Bread Dipper. Make an easy bread dipper to serve with slices of warm, crusty baguette or crudités.

  • Fruit Salad. Drizzle over fruit salad. Add a chiffonade of fresh basil.

  • Pizza. Drizzle on a pizza before serving.

  • Pesto Sauce. Make a large batch of pesto sauce. Freeze in ice cube trays for later use. After the cubes are frozen, transfer them to a heavy duty plastic freezer bag or a plastic container.

If you find yourself without fresh basil for a recipe, add a bit of basil olive oil.
