“Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Beet Slaw with Pancetta
I received a set of O Olive Oil to facilitate this review. A positive review was not required and all opinions and experiences are my own.
One of my favorite winter vegetables is the lowly Brussels sprout.
I know. I mention this casually and people make that face. They try not to show disdain, but a childhood of smelly Brussels sprouts is hard to push down. No, I do not like them boiled, I am not even fond of them steamed, but roasted… well, that is utter perfection!
I wanted to include a hearty and seasonal side for this Progressive Dinner that would satisfy even the pickiest person in my family. I served this as a test to my husband, who practically licked his plate clean and went back for seconds. Yes, it was a grand success. It is a lovely combination of sweet and earthy flavors, topped with a crunchy pancetta and then kissed with a lovely Meyer Lemon Olive Oil to finish it.
Yes, what really brings all these flavors together is the O Olive Oil…
Have you ever tried O Olive Oil?
They have an amazing selection of artisanal oils and vinegars to add that special touch to any dish you make. Based in California, they harness the warm sun and rich soil for their vinegar and bring delicious and creative olive oils to the table. Yes, these are high quality ingredients crafted in the USA, and I always love to support family farmers and the quality they bring to the food they grow.
Never infused or flavored, these oils are the real thing. They are pressed with the fruits, garlic, etc. so the flavor permeates the product.
The vinegars are hand-crafted, one batch at a time, with a range of beautiful balsamics and premium wine vinegars that begin with the best Sonoma, California grapes.
Looking for inspiration? O Olive Oils have great recipes and ideas on their site for how to enjoy their oils and vinegars. These are high quality finishing oils, not intended for the cooking process, they top salads, go in marinades or other dishes to bring your recipes to an whole new level. I plan to try them all out on my favorite vegetables and salads to get me through the Winter eating blahs.
And O has partnered up with Martha Stewart’s Cooking School, so you know it has to be a high quality product…
And, let’s not forget the Giveaway!
