One of the best salad dressings is created by mixing Blood Orange Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Tangerine Balsamic Vinegar. These ingredients were purchased from Old Town Oil in Chicago but rumor has it there is a similar oil shop on The Landing in Branson so check it out!
You might have heard of a few nutritional benefits of EVO, such as it's a "healthy" fat and it's heart healthy properties. While all of that is true, it's still FAT and fat has a lot of calories. Extra calories means extra body weight which makes it harder for the heart to pump. EVO contains the type of fat that can actually help protect the heart but that certainly does not mean the more the better. So enjoy and eat in moderation!
