Combine 2 parts Koroneiki Extra Virgin Olive Oil with 1 part balsamic vinegar. Whisk together and serve. To emulsify dab in a small amount of dijon mustard or light mayo and continue whisking. Oil and balsamic will become creamy in appearance. Refrigerate remaining amount for up to 3 days.
Combine equal parts Koroneiki Extra Virgin Olive Oil with equal parts balsamic vinegar. We recommend preparing enough to cover the meat. Place in zip-lock bag and squeeze out air. Place in refrigerator for at least six hours. Note: For Fish, Seafood (catches from the water) we recommend rubbing the olive oil into the raw meat in the absence of the balsamic vinegar for approximately 30 minutes. We remove the balsamic during the marinade to eliminate the chance of the acidity in the vinegar from “cooking” the delicate meat. After cooking toss/drizzle meat with combination of Koroneiki Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic.
Applying heat to any oil or balsamic may slightly reduce the original flavor profile. To bring back any lost flavors prepare a small amount of fresh marinade and drizzle over the finished product.
