Simple Secret: Herb-Infused Olive Oil

If you're looking for an easy way to jazz up salads or maybe even something to invigorate a grilled chicken breast, flavored olive oil is a crazy easy solution. Nothing that takes too much work, but gives you just enough of that somethin' somethin'.

This is oil you'll want to be using, not the weird decorative stuff in large, oddly-shaped bottles. Does anyone ever use that stuff?

But there is no need to buy olive oil from a fancy store in the mall and once you figure out how easy it is, you'll be outraged at what they were charging you.

Hello gorgeous rosemary olive oil. You look so charming in that cute little jar. I shall put you on everything.

This is all there is... the herbs and the oil. Put them over heat for a few minutes and allow to cool. Seriously, that's all you have to do.

The herbs in there will get pretty crispy, so strain into the jar. Add a fresh sprig for appearance later.

Herb-Infused Olive Oil
1 1/2 cups good-quality extra virgin olive oil
5-6 sprigs of your favorite herbs

Combine herbs and oil and heat on low for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow oil to cool completely before straining. Store in tightly-sealed jar in the refrigerator for up to one month.
