The Olive Tap Recipes

This simple yet elegant recipe requires few ingredients and yet tastes like you spent hours preparing it. I love the sweet tart balance of the Tuscan herbs and tart grapefruit but any citrus vinegar would work. An Olive Tap Recipe Contest 1st Place Winner!


Using the delicious Olive Tap Italiano Olive Oil, Julie developed a recipe that replicates the flavor of Trattoria pesto—hold the lactose. This flavor-packed, fruity oil stands up well against the pungent Pecorino Romano cheese (a sheep variety that has none of the lactose found in cow’s milk Parmesano) and the freshness of our home-grown basil. And … the whole recipe is so, so quick to assemble! It’s a snap. But it tastes like I slaved over it for hours. It’ll be our secret, okay? An Olive Tap Recipe Contest Winner!
