Ice Cream with Olive Oil & Sea Salt

07 August, 2012

This is one of my all-time favorite desserts. Delicious!


Quality Vanilla Ice Cream
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (grassy, herbal, not too robust)
Sea Salt - Maldon Sea Salt works the best because they’re a flake, not coarse and do not have to be ground. If you don’t have Maldon Sea Salt, put coarse sea salt in a mortar and pestle and smash it.

Place a few scoops of ice cream in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and top with a sprinkle of sea salt.
