It’s the time of year when we gather with loved ones to enjoy the holiday season.  For many, it’s also a reason to eat fantastic food and a few more sweets than we should!

This year, we invite you to add more olive oil to your recipes whether by substitutions or simple drizzles to your holiday plating that appears as though a chef created it (whether or not you have the skills of a master chef).

To get you started, we’re sharing some of our favorite olive oil Christmas recipe fixes!
