Finishing oil​

Kickn' Watermelon Salad 

I did this recipe using yellow watermelon ...     Adjust the jalapeño if needed....  It turned out AWESOME!!!!!

When you see it in a salad, you’ll often find juicy watermelon paired with ingredients like goat cheese, mint, and red onion, then drizzled with a little balsamic. While we happen to love that preparation, that’s not the only way to eat the quintessential summer fruit in a salad. In this recipe watermelon is combined with basil and spicy red onion, cool, creamy avocado, a splash of lime and spinach. Top it this spicy, kickn' jalapeño dressing and you have a new sweet summery salad with just the right kick.  GUARANTEED not to have two of these at a potluck!! (At least the first time)

For the dressing:  
⅓ cup River Ranch Oregon Olive Oil 
Juice of 1/2 lime
½ jalapeño, sliced
1 clove of garlic, smashed 
Salt and pepper, to taste



1 tablespoon your favorite balsamic vinegar 
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1/3 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
Handful torn fresh baby spinach 
Handful torn fresh basil leaves 

A true epicurean  experience



Culinary Chefs, Food Critics and Foodies agree that keeping two types of olive oil in the kitchen only makes sense --- a big jug for baking, roasting, and sautéing​                                        

                                                  ~~ AND the best oil you can afford for finishing.
