Olive Oil has been a traditional harvest in the Mediterranean countries. Besides cooking you will find it in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and soaps.

I am most interested in the cooking angle of Olive oil for a healthy diet. It is a widely agreed upon fact that due to the Mediterranean diet lots of the diseases are kept in check. Exactly the opposite of our US Diet. I for one use it a lot. One simple example is. If I just want to have a quick breakfast I'll get a plate add some paprika, chili pepper and Olives in it and drizzle a healthy amount of olive oil. and dig in.

What is your opinion on Olive oil, how do you use it. Any good recipes?
