Extra virgin olive oil is a key feature of the Mediterranean diet. It is no wonder Mediterranean diets are so healthy – they use extra virgin olive oil as a key ingredient in baking, roasting and dressings. Adding a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil over ingredients such as meat, fish and vegetables not only makes it tastier but also gives your meal the final nutritious touch.
