The Humble Potato Salad Gets The Mediterranean Treatment
Whoever said that potatoes are boring needs to invest in some of the best extra virgin olive oil available and let the flavours mingle on the heat of a barbeque!
Extra Virgin Olive Oil takes some beating when it comes to antioxidant bang for your buck but potatoes are also rich in compounds like flavonoids, carotenoids and phenolic acids.
These compounds help to ward off diseases like heart disease, diabetes and cancer by neutralizing potentially harmful ‘free radicals’ in our body. And, by pairing up your potatoes with a healthy dose of Extra Virgin Olive Oil you are giving your body a supercharge of disease busting polyphenols. Our latest harvest, now available to purchase, has a low acidity of 0.2% and the highest ever levels of polyphenols seen in our high-quality oil to date.
According to Healthline, coloured potatoes like purple potatoes can have three to four times more antioxidants than white potatoes.
So next time you’re considering the perfect side for your grilled meat, look no further than this heart-warming Grilled Potato Salad. Just make sure you use the right olive oil for cooking.
The characteristics of Morocco Gold Extra Virgin Olive Oil, with its distinctive green fruitiness, hints of almond and herbs, fresh turf and the peppery aftertaste, gives a vibrant, well balanced finish.
If you have any Morocco Gold left over after you’ve made your potato salad, why not use it as a dip for crispy, fresh bread.
