Olive Garden Appetizers: One Part of a 4 Course Meal

Minot Restaurants:  The Famous Olive Garden’s Appetizers

Reported by Jan Ashby     Local Business Superstar

If you are one who enjoys a 4-course meal, you may be interested in the Olive Garden appetizers available at Minot ND.   As an

accompaniment

to your italian meal, you can partake of one of the Olive Garden special appetizers – such as Bruschetta al Pomodoro,  Olive Garden appetizersBruschetta Cannellini, Italian Pasta Salad Supremo with Primavera Toast, Tomato & Mozzarella Caprese,  or  Italian Sausage Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms with Herb Parmesan Cream Sauce .

You might try a Tuscan-inspired dish later in your meal – for example, there is Bruschetta – made with roma tomatoes, fresh basil and Balsamic vinegar – which I found to be quite flavorful. Or perhaps you’d delight in Tomato Basil Crostini – it’s components include fresh basil, plum tomatoes, olive oil and parmesan cheese.

By the way, be sure to check the Olive Garden recipes I placed at the end of this post.

Italian Culture and Origins: The Tuscan Landscape

Extra Virgin Olive oilI love that Olive Garden uses extra-virgin olive oil, as that is the only kind I use at home. Of course, it makes sense as olive trees have long been present on the Tuscan landscape. Do you realize that you can make your own version of the delicious salad dressing that Olive G. makes?

The dressing is one thing that does not feature olive oil.  It does have vinegar, lemon, romano cheese, and dried Italian seasoning.

Say, did you know that olive trees have gnarly trunks, and that you must prune them in order to have an easier time picking the fruit? In fact, even if you have friends willing to help with the harvest it doesn’t matter – you should READ this article and learn about the necessity of pruning.  A good density of fruit is needed on each branch, for “effective picking”.  Also, strong sunlight will be required at every STAGE of the olive tree’s growth.

If you’re into gardening, there is an excellent article about nurturing OLIVE Trees at the conclusion of this post.    Little Known Fact: An unpruned tree tends to have olives scattered in groups of 1 or 2 all over an untidy bush.
