Balsamic Vinegar – Two-Part Salad Dressing
· Specialties ·
We have developed BIO PLANÈTE’s two-component salad dressing for lovers of Mediterranean cuisine. Crucial for this duet’s balanced and elegant taste is the quality of the ingredients:
70 % Olive Oil Extra Virgin: Many of the trees that provide us with the fruit are over one hundred years old. Hand-picked, carefully sorted, and first cold pressed, the olives make an unique oil with a softly fruity note.
30 % Balsamic Vinegar: The »Aceto Balsamico di Modena (P.G.I. – protected geographical indication)« we use is made from superior must of organically farmed Lambruschi, Sangiovese and Trebbiani grapes. The balsamic vinegar comes from Modena, a region rich in tradition, for which Aceto Balsamico has become an integral part of its cultural heritage.
Just shake the bottle for a few seconds and instantly conjure up a perfectly composed vinaigrette for Caprese salad or other salad variations with this specialty. The mixture is also excellently suited for seasoning meat, fish, or lukewarm served vegetable dishes such as asparagus, zucchini, and artichokes.

How long can I keep Olive Oil?
In contrast to wine, Olive Oil does not get better with age. Its essential components, such as mono-unsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E and polyphenols are broken down when stored for a long time. This also creates substances which negatively impact on taste. That's why you should use Olive Oil within a year or at most two years of it being harvested. The use-by dates give you a safe guidance value of good quality and taste.
How are olives harvested? Do birds die during olive harvest?
No. Our olives are harvested by hand using gentle rocking techniques. The olives fall on a collecting screen which the farm labourers can remove. We maintain continuous close contact with our farmers and can definitively confirm that, in the absence of highly automated harvesters, no songbirds are killed. Our farmers grow their olives in traditional regions using old, large olive trees on rocky ground which make it impossible to use such harvesters.
How should I store Olive Oil?
Olive Oil should always be protected from light irradiation. That's why we always fill our BIO PLANÈTE Olive Oils in high-quality light-protection bottles which shield the oil from light and oxygen. Olive Oil can be stored in the fridge, but this is not a requirement. It also lasts for many months at room temperatures.
Can I still use flaky Olive Oil?
Olive Oil can become flaky at temperatures below +7°C. This is normal and does not influence its quality or taste. If you increase ambient temperature again, the oil will liquefy again within only a few hours.
