Summer = Lots of Salad

I don't know about you, but when the weather heats up I really don't like cooking dinner. The kitchen is hot enough without having to stand in front of a hot plate/oven to get dinner cooked.

This means that BBQ's and salads are on the menu quite a bit here.

A few weeks back we were asked to review some products by the name of  Rich Glen Olives. I hadn't heard of them before but was keen to try them out. With B's Italian heritage and our recent trip to Melbourne inciting his love of Italian food I am looking for a good olive oil and I was also keen to try out their ready made salad dressing too. I find the run of the mill 'french' and 'italian' dressing a bit blah, so was excited to try their Poppy's Salad Dressing.

We used the Salad Dressing on our basic salad we had for dinner last night and lets just say it is to die for!
Ok, I know my salad doesn't look that great, but OMG it was delish!

 All three kids thought is was great and ate all their dinner. So that gives it major props in my book. I have also been told that the dressing is great on steaks and makes a great sandwich topping too!

Now, if like me you haven't heard of Rich Glen Olives they are situated on the banks of the Murray River in Yarrawonga, VIC. Which I am told it the heart of Victoria's gourmet food and wine region. They are also one Australia's largest family owned and operated olive groves in Australia.

These guys have also just started a Facebook page and would love it if you popped over and said Hi. And for some great recipe ideas why not check out the website: Rich Glen Olive Oil

Over the next few weeks I will be trying out there Zesty Lemon and Lime Olive Oil and the Signature First Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil so keep your eyes peeled for the recipes.
