Olive oil, widely used in Mediterranean cuisines, is amongst the healthiest cooking oils in the world. Apart from enhancing the flavor of your food, it also gives you healthy unsaturated fatty acids that help in lowering the cholesterol level in the blood and are considered good for the heart. However, to improve the flavor and the nutritional value of olive oil further consider infusing it with a variety of herbs. You can store the infused olive oil and add them to salads and other dishes.
