Garlic Infused Olive Oil is one of The Olive Scene’s most versatile oils, with the smooth, nutty flavor of slow-roasted garlic. Garlic is a common ingredient in cuisines from all over the globe, making this the perfect oil for both adventurous and beginner cooks alike.
It’s fantastic in marinades, and can even be used in vinaigrettes since it’s a more subtle, cooked garlic flavor. We love to pair it with different flavored vinegars for creative combinations.
With pork, chicken, or beef, we tend to mix it with our Neapolitan Herb Balsamic Vinegar, Traditional 18 Year Balsamic Vinegar, Jalapeno White Balsamic Vinegar, Premium White Balsamic Vinegar, or any of our wine vinegars for a savory marinade.
If you’re looking for pairings to make salad dressings and vinaigrettes, try matching Garlic Infused Olive Oil with a fruit-flavored vinegar for a lighter combination. We love it with Red Apple Balsamic Vinegar, Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar, Tangerine Balsamic Vinegar, Gravenstein Apple White Balsamic Vinegar, and Golden Pineapple Balsamic Vinegar.
Garlic Infused Olive Oil has so many uses beyond marinades and vinaigrettes, too! We use it to add flavor to pasta dishes, mashed potatoes, roasted meats, and soups. It’s delicious to dip crusty bread in as an easy appetizer (see our Garlicky Dipping Oil recipe above).
Toss cubed potatoes in a little Garlic Infused Olive Oil, add salt and pepper and roast at 400 degrees for 30-45 minutes.
Finish steamed vegetables like broccoli or green beans with a drizzle of it, then top with sesame seeds, chopped nuts, or fresh basil. Use it to make bruschetta. Brush it on your bread to add extra flavor to your grilled cheese sandwiches. Make homemade garlic mayonnaise using Garlic Infused Olive Oil (it’s easier than you might think!).
