Top Review by Miss Annie

This is outstanding. I made it exactly as directed. The flavors were all in harmony, and the fresh rosemary gave the oil a marvelous flavor. I served it over crisp iceburg lettuce, using a tiny bit of the oil as the dressing. This is definately a treasured recipe! Thanks for sharing it, Evie!
