Move Over Olive Oil
If you like olive oil (the cooking kind not Popeye's girlfriend), you're going to love avocado oil. Like olive oil, it's got some nutritional benefits, such as antioxidants and Vitamin E, but its also got potassium and protein. It's flavor is a bit more subtle than olive oil, with a hint of pepper. Avocado oil is perfect for homemade salad dressings or for sauteing fish or chicken. It won't smoke as easily as olive oil which means you can cook with it at higher temperatures of up to 500 degrees.
