Review and recipe: Flavor your life. European Extra Olive Oil.





*Disclaimer* I was given the opportunity to try out this product. This product was given to me for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com) for the purpose to use and give my honest opinion on this product. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.

I had the opportunity to try out this product and I must say we are definitely enjoying it. It adds a burst of flavor to any dish. I was given several recipe cards to choose from. I decided to go with the creamy avocado crostini.

Creamy Avocado Crostini

Serves 16.
Ingredients that you will need:
-1 ripe avocado
-1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt
-1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper
-1 cup of extra virgin olive oil
-2 tablespoons of chopped chives
-2 tablespoons of lemon juice
-1 baguette, sliced diagonally 

Start off with preheating your broiler on high.

Next, you'll want to slice up your avocado and add it into a bowl. 
Once you have done  this take your garlic salt, pepper, lemon juice and chives and add them 
in with your avocado. Give it all a good mix!  

Once you're all done with that take 2 tablespoons of your olive oil and mix it in with your avocado mix. Stir until everything is smooth and there are no chuncks. Set your mixture aside for now.

Next take your bread and slice it.  Lay it flat onto a baking tray. Brush the remaining extra olive oil on both sides of  your bread. Place your baking tray into your broiler and wait until both sides of your bread turn a light golden brown.

Remove from broiler. Take your avocado mix and spread onto your crostini. 

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did. It was so delicious. I thought the flavors of the avocado and extra olive oil created a delicious combination. And this can easily be served as an appetizer while hosting a dinner party or even a wine tasting. Ah, it was everything I thought it would be. Turned out amazing!

European extra olive oil is amazing! It is virtually free of acidity. It is made by pressing without heat or the use of chemical. Between uses you should store it in an area that is dark and cool. Try not to store on a counter or near a stove. And never store it in the refrigerator.
