The Spicy Olive’s Harvest Salad

Here is a great fall salad, full of the delicious flavors of an autumn harvest. This salad is easy to change up depending on what’s in your refrigerator. A delicious addition would be any leftover squash from our The Spicy Olive’s Roasted Butternut Squash!

A number of balsamic vinegar and olive oil combinations would work here; our Pumpkin Spice white balsamic vinegar with a mild extra virgin, single varietal olive oil, our Black Mission Fig or Cranberry Pear balsamic with Blood Orange olive oil would be my favorites on this salad!

The Spicy Olive was on The Fox Morning Show, July 23, 2019. Melanie Cedargren, owner of The Spicy Olive demonstrated some different twists on a summer favorite, The Caprese Salad. Melanie prepared the Traditional Caprese Salad with fresh sliced tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and fresh basil finished with a drizzle of The Spicy Olive’s Fresh extra virgin olive oil and a reduction of our Traditional Aged 18 Year balsamic vinegar.

Then Melanie did 2 creative twists on the Caprese, a Strawberry Caprese Pasta Salad featuring The Spicy Olive’s Basil olive oil and our Strawberry balsamic vinegar and a Peach, Mango and Tomato Caprese Salad with our Ripe Peach white balsamic vinegar and one of our delicious fresh extra virgin olive oils.

These salads are so full of summer flavors and will complement any meal!

Peach, Mango, Tomato Caprese Salad

The Spicy Olive’s Peach, Mango and Tomato Caprese Salad

This salad combines many summer flavors into one delicious side dish! Fresh summer peaches, tropical mangoes and tomatoes are complemented by The Spicy Olive’s Ripe Peach or Alfoos Mango white balsamic vinegar. A taste treat that will delight the whole family!

Strawberry Pasta Salad

The Spicy Olive’s Strawberry Pasta Salad

Here is a great side dish for your summer BBQs, pool parties or other gatherings! Delicious summer strawberries highlight this warm weather salad!

The Spicy Olive’s Mandarin Pasta Salad

This is the perfect pasta salad for pot luck dinners and summer parties! This one is also a salad that kids love! Add grilled chicken to make this main dish instead of a side.

The Mandarin Pasta salad has an Asian flare because it is dressed with our Honey Ginger balsamic but to play up the Mandarin tangerine flavor, I used The Spicy Olive’s Mandarin olive oil. It is packed with delicious citrus flavor and is the perfect compliment. If our Mandarin olive oil is not available (it is a seasonal olive oil) our Blood Orange olive oil is a great substitute!

The Spicy Olive’s Summer Corn Salad

This salad is a delicious summer side dish made with fresh corn! For south of the border flavor and a little heat, try it with our Persian Lime olive oil and Serrano Honey balsamic vinegar instead of the varieties in the recipe. Add cilantro if using this combo instead of the dill and mint in this recipe.  Another delicious combination for this salad would be The Spicy Olive’s Basil olive oil and our Lemongrass Mint balsamic. That combo will play up the fresh herbs in the salad!

The Spicy Olive’s German-style Potato Salad

My Grandma always made a delicious German potato salad with a vinaigrette dressing and lots of crumbled bacon. This is my take on her recipe using our delicious olive oils and balsamic vinegars for the dressing! The Olivewood Smoked olive oil adds to the smoky flavor the bacon imparts on the salad!
