Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil

By Farideh Sadeghin

Published on March 5, 2013

Olive oil has always been one of my favorite tools in the kitchen, ranked right up there with my knives and wooden spoons. This is why I was so excited to discover Planeta olive oil from Italy. Made using three varieties of Sicilian olives—Nocellara del Belice, Biancolilla, and Cerasuola— this extra virgin olive oil has a smooth texture and a bright, lemony flavor with a peppery finish—perfect for drizzling over fresh grilled fish or tossing through pasta. The olives are hand-picked and pressed a few weeks before the usual October harvest which creates a vibrant green color and a more intense flavor. Available in three different sizes, they're the perfect addition to my kitchen pantry.
