Salud de Paloma Extra Virgin Olive Oil Tasting

Salud de Paloma Traditional Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Salud de Paloma Traditional is 100% Natural Cold Pressed Texas Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  The Arbequina olive trees are organically grown in the central Texas Hill Country.  Salud de Paloma has a round, buttery, fresh flavor with a slight peppery spiciness that ensures a long finish to this refreshing oil.  Use it on all of your favorite foods. The president of Salud de Paloma is Latina and she quotes from Karl Shapiro’s poem “It is the silver tree, the holy tree, Tree of all attributes.”   Bien Provecho!

Be sure to stop by Melissa Guerra Latin Kitchen Market for our tasting tomorrow, Saturday, May 3rd from 10:00AM to 1:00PM! We look forward to seeing you there!
