I really don't want them to go bad, so I am offering yet another giveaway in which you leave me a comment mentioning your favorite dish with which to use olive oil and your e-mail address by Thursday at 1pm est. I'll pick 5 of my favorite to send the coupon to. The giveaway is only open to US residents through Thursday at 1pm EST, so that I can have your coupon in the mail asap.

My favorite dish to have using Filippo Berio olive oil is Caprese Salad.

Cut your mozzarella and tomato up into thick slices. Alternate mozzarella, tomato, and basil on a plate. Spritz with a bit of Filippo Berio olive oil and your balsamic vinegar glaze. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stick fork in and enjoy! :)

This is also a great appetizer to take to a party. You can buy small mozzarella balls and cherry tomatoes. You could mix it all up in a bowl like a salad, so that guests can use tongs to serve themselves or individually put cherry tomatoes, mozzarella balls, and a piece of basil on toothpicks sprinkling the balsamic vinegar glaze and Filippo Berio oil over the serving platter in a pretty way. :)

While I certainly do love caprese salad, I can't wait to read your suggestions and recommendations for using olive oil in other dishes!
