Olive Oil with Capers and Chili Peppers

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by evelynathens

From Aglaia Kremezi. Use this oil to flavour salads and steamed or grilled vegetables. Mayonnaise made with this oil has an exquisite taste. This has a 1-week standing time.

The heat and the subtle taste of capers makes this oil top notch! I think this would be great over pasta and will use it over some steamed yellow squash! Thanks Evelyn!
