The Best Vinegar Ever!
Calling all Kansas City friends...
There is a new shop you HAVE to visit. This past weekend my hubby and I decided to enjoy the beautiful weather and walk around downtown Overland Park. There are so many cute shops and restaurants in that area, but one place in particular really stood out to us - The Tasteful Olive. We were warmly greeted and given a brief rundown of what their shop is all about. They have a huge selection of the finest olive oils and vinegars from all over the world and you are able to taste as many as you like. We were intrigued by some of the olive oil flavors: Blood Orange Fusion, Wild Mushroom and Sage, and Persian Lime Fusion. Yum!! There were some interesting balsamic vinegar flavors too: Chocolate Balsamic, Coconut White Balsamic, and Wild Blueberry Balsamic. By far our favorite was the Cinnamon Pear Balsamic. Sounds interesting, huh?! They filled a bottle for us right there in the shop.
Last night we gave our vinegar a try. I made a salad using:
Mixed baby greens
I mixed in a very small amount of olive oil in with our vinegar to make the dressing. We had high hopes for the dressing and let me tell you - we were not disappointed!! By far one of the best dressings we have ever tried! Absolutely delicious!
You can check out their website here. And if you live nearby, stop by their cute little shop!
