Gelato Con Olio E Sale (Ice Cream With Olive Oil & Sea Salt)

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by A la Carte

I have not made this, but I do intend to! It's just too darn tempting. And if it's no good, I'm only out a bowl of vanilla ice cream! This is from Jamie Oliver "Jamie's Italy". Measurements given were vague. Use the best quality Extra virgin olive oil you can find, with a grassy flavor.

I was scared to try it, but once I did, I loved it! Such a unique taste!
I think I made the mistake though of using unground sea salt. I used big ol salt crystals in mine, and it was too salty and I had to spit it out.
So, use ground sea salt. :) You'll love it.


  1. Put a couple of scoops of good quality vanilla ice cream in to a bowl. Drizzle over some very good extra virgin olive oil, and sprinkle with a tiny pinch of sea salt on top.
  2. (He sez: I can't explain what it's like, you'll just have to try it! But it was bloody gorgeous!).
