A few weeks ago I started a new series called My Favorite 5. Today I want to share 5 Oils from Trader Joe’s. When Trader Joe’s opened near me a few years ago, I didn’t get all the hype. I’d never been to one and the things others were saying were so great, we couldn’t eat due to our gluten and nut allergies. Well, I’m a huge fan now and there are so many great things I keep in my pantry from there. I’ll share those in future posts.
Olive Oil with Lemon Juice: This lemon flavored oil is great as a salad dressing with just salt and pepper. I also toss Brussels Sprouts or Asparagus in it before roasting. An easy and tasty side dish.
Black Truffle Oil: This is great on vegetables or french fries! I also used it to sauté chicken. Great flavor.
Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil: A staple in my kitchen for everything from cooking to salad dressings.
Thyme Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette: Yes, technically not an oil but is so good. I use for a dressing, cooking and dip.
Garlic Olive Oil: A very tasty oil with perfect garlic flavor. Great for a dressing with only salt and pepper or cooking as well.
I keep these oils on my counter at the ready on this great marble tray with my Kosher salt in an olive wood keeper.
