Give olive oil a try, the options are plentiful

Few things go together as well as fresh tomatoes and olive oil.

Summertime is in high gear, and grocery stores and farmers markets have good selections of tomatoes.

Ripe tomatoes pair nicely with a curl of Parmigiano Reggiano, a little fresh thyme and a good olive oil.

Add mozzarella and you have a Caprese salad, but it is just as good without it.

Remember to use a good olive oil, Italian-made Parmigiano Reggiano and garden-fresh herbs.

I hope you will check out the selection of olive oil many grocery stores are now carrying.

Don’t be satisfied with a wimpy oil. Find one that stands up on its own and is fruity, pungent and just a bit bitter.
