Olive oil is the elixir of life. It has been with us for centuries and every major culture in this world today uses olive oil in some aspect of their cooking. Olive oil is a documented cholesterol fighter with proven immune system benefits. Olive oil fights cancer, helps promote weight loss, fights heart disease, lowers blood pressure, and is a great source of vitamin E. This recipe is a solid economic winner. It costs almost nothing to make while providing immeasurable health benefits. This is a recipe I love to recommend. Cheap on a cost basis but packed with untold life benefits. You can pair this with a salad and kick it up another notch. I have included a simple recipe for salad dressing at the end of the recipe. Enjoy!
