I pretty much use it for everything- dressing salads, frying meat, fish etc. Make sure to buy it only in tinted glass bottles!

I don't do dressings like Americans do. I just dress sala with olive oil, lemon, and salt.

It truely is the best oil for cooking purposes. Better for you than lard or vegitable oil too.

Olive oil is the best - I made steak recently for my wife and mixed spices in a seperate bottle along with some olive oil to see how it would come out (had never tried it that way before) and it was fabulous.
I use it in alot of what I cook. I love the way it adds a hinted flavor to meat and believe it or not I actually use a small amount when frying eggs. I almost never use vegitable oil any longer considering it is the worst kind of oil there is (fat builder). It is great when used to enhance speghetti noodles in texture (or lack there of). As for the tinted bottles, I never realized that tinted was better.

I am originally from Italy. I was home in October and I read an article about making sure the 'Made In Italy' on Olive oil is really true. One of the tips for extra virgin was to make sure the glass is dark.
