Do you use EVOO in your salads and bread dippings?

Rossie Rossie
Lately I have been going all out with extra virgin olive oil, because it helps prevent constipation, and also maintains my digestive tract health. I've been adding it to my salads, and dipping french bread with it. Are you into EVOO also? Do you use the cold compressed type or just regular EVOO? Care to share what brand you use?

I use it often, but not for health reasons. I just like it.

Extra virgin olive oil is one of the healthy oils I use on a regular basis (along with coconut oil, organic butter and bacon drippings.) Unlike the other three, I only use EVOO cold, NOT for cooking. That's because being an unsaturated fat, its bonds (and vitamin E) are easily damaged by heat. My father, on the other hand, was born and raised in Italy and uses olive oil for EVERYTHING. It's not like it's necessarily UNhealthy, but why spend good money on cold-pressed EVOO and then destroy some of the benefits by heating it? My grandfather used to cook with lard a lot--I'm guessing the unfair propaganda against animal fats over the last few generations made by dad change his style of cooking. Oh well, I'm bringin' it back. ;-)

Right, I only use EVOO on my cold salads. When I cook, I'll sometimes use extra light olive oil, my cooked dishes comes out less greasy (when compared to cooking with other vegetable oils).

On a salad or sub, it's best with a good balsamic vinegar.

ohhh, I thought that was a certain brand. I was going to ask what it was. Yes, I've been using it since I was a kid.

I've really only ever used Cold Pressed EVOO and I use it in a lot of cooking really. I do not enjoy it by itself however, I can't sit there and dip bread into it and eat it like that, even if it has italian seasonings or other seasonings. No certain brand I like really, I just buy the cheapest I can find.

I use EVOO constantly - it goes in most recipes, to make salad dressing, to dip bread in, etc.

EVOO is a main staple in my kitchen and in my diet. It's incredibly good for you, AND it tastes great! Just so you know, if no one else has mentioned it, it's "cold pressed," not "cold compressed."

Thanks for letting me know, wonder why I used "compressed", I was probably in a hurry to do something else!

I use it as my primary cooking oil, though I use coconut oil for sweeter stuff. Processed oils like canola are not great for ya.
