The Spicy Olive’s Mashed Potatoes

The Spicy Olive’s Mashed Potatoes

Make mashed potatoes your favorite way, but to finish add The Spicy Olive’s flavored olive oils to elevate your mashed potatoes to a new level! Add Butter olive oil for great butter flavor without the fat of butter, Wild Mushroom and Sage for something deliciously different, Garlic for yummy garlic mashed potatoes or  for gourmet spuds our Back or White Truffle oils!

To make the Truffle Mashed Potatoes, I recommend making them with our Butter olive oil and then drizzling with Black or White Truffle to finish. A little bit of truffle oil goes a long way but delivers so much flavor, absolutely delicious!

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 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!
