Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar #Review & #Giveaway

EVOO and Balsamic Vinegar are my go to choice for salad dressing.  I used to use ranch and loved 3 cheese ranch dressing, however when I went dairy free, or mostly dairy free, I need to try something different.  It was my daughter in law who introduced me to EVOO and balsamic vinegar.  As she is straight from Spain, my son tells me she has olive oil running in her veins.   So started my taste journey.

There's a Party Inside

There’s a Party Inside

Tina Kraft with Mix Party sent me some of the Gourmet Collection, Sundried Tomato Olive Oil and Coconut White Balsamic.  To tell the truth I did not know olive oil and balsamic came in so many flavors.  Be sure to have a look at the whole Gourmet Collection to see what would be your favorite.  I spent some time using these two great items in various tried and true recipes, you can find them under Nana’s Kitchen, Recipes.

The Sundried Tomato Olive Oil was a rich tasting oil, it had a real smoky flavor to it.  My favorite was using it my recipe for Smashed Potatoes.  Equally good with foil package full of potatoes and veggies baked slow on the barbecue, but it was also very tasty on plain garden salad with regular balsamic.Coconut Balsamic Vinegar and Sundried Tomato Infused Olive Oil

The Coconut White Balsamic was fun to work with.  It has a very distinct flavor of coconut with a tangy after taste.  I loved using it in both my Peach Sorbet and in Raspberry Vinegar.  For a real wake up call, take EVOO and Coconut White Balsamic in a small bowl together; dip in chucks of bread for a tasty appetizer.  Have a look at this recipe from Mix Party:  Coconut Grilled Shimp and Pineapple.

Besides the wonderful Gourmet Collection, Mix Party also has a Cocktail and Sparkling Wine Collection.  This is a new kind of direct selling business, Mix Party offers a unique and fresh approach to home parties.  Happy Hour.  A social experience with tasty treats and a wide variety of drinks.  There are beautiful bottles for the Cocktail Collection, you get to choose the one you like.   You can shop for someone special with the gift boxes in any of the collections.  Are you looking for something different?  A consumable and fun business?  Take a closer look at Mix Party and be sure to tell them where you found them.
