Raw Vegetables Dipped In Olive Oil

A mix of raw vegetables that are dipped in olive oil seasoned with a touch of salt and perhaps fresh black pepper is the perfect way to “test” the flavors of extra-virgin olive oils. When different olive oils are applied to the vegetables with a pinch of salt, you can most certainly pick your favorite. The following is simply a suggestion of the vegetables you might include. Arrange them attractively in a large bowl of ice water, to keep them cool.


  • Tender ribs celery with leaves washed
  • Baby artichokes
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Fresh baby fava beans in their pods
  • Fennel bulbs, cut in halves
  • Red, and, green bell peppers, quartered, lengthwise
  • Carrots, peeled and diced
  • Fresh baby onions or scallions
  • Cucumbers, minced
  • Spanish extra-virgin olive oil
  • Fine sea salt and freshly ground
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Fresh country bread
