Definition of Gremolata

One of our best-loved extra virgin olive oils is the sweet and peppy Milanese Gremolata. The first name of the olive oil, Milanese, is simple: one of Italy’s largest cities is Milan. But what is Gremolata?

To be simple but vague, it’s a condiment. And it has all of the ingredients that you experience when you sip our Milanese Gremolata oil.

  • Flat-leaf parsley
  • Garlic
  • Rosemary
  • Lemon

All of these ingredients are chopped and combined together. Often the herbs are scattered on top of a meat dish, such as fish or the more traditional Milanese veal dish.

The Spicy Olives recommend the Milanese Gremolata EVOO as a great base for marinades or salad dressings.
