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 Mandarin Agrumato Olive Oil, Coconut, Cherries, and Cashews Granola

A delicious snack or breakfast food! The Mandarin olive oil and vanilla give this granola a surprising flavor. Delicious served over Greek Yogurt, ice cream or eat by the handful for a healthy snack

Dark Chocolate and Mandarin Agrumato Olive Oil Madeleines

Absolutely mind blowing. Here’s a perfect example of using olive oil not simply because it’s amazingly good for the human body, but also because if used in the proper context, it can elevate even the most humble of culinary applications.
The bright, citrus notes of the Mandarin Agrumato (fused) Olive Oil play beautifully with the deep, earthy, rich dark chocolate. The exterior edges are just ever so barely caramelized, while the middles are ethereal and moist.

These would also be delicious made with The Spicy Olive’s Blood Orange olive oil!
