Pour olive oil into an olive oil dipping dish. Modena Aceto Balsamico Tradition ale is a very exotic balsamic vinegar and it is great when a small amount is mixed with the olive oil. The fresh but crusty bread is the best as well. Dip the bread in the oil and vinegar dipping dish and enjoy a healthy Italian appetizer of the Mediterranean diet. Olive oil is very healthy and helps prevent diseases and cancer. To add style and some décor to your table, an olive oil cruet to pour the olive oil would be perfect.
