Balsamic Vinegar – Two-Part Salad Dressing
· Specialties ·
We have developed BIO PLANÈTE’s Two-Part Salad Dressing for Mediterranean cuisine lovers. Crucial for this duet’s balanced and elegant taste is the quality of the ingredients:
70 % Olive Oil Extra Virgin: Hand-picked, carefully sorted, and first cold pressed in Spain, the ripe olives make a unique olive oil with a softly fruity aroma.
30 % Balsamic Vinegar: The “Aceto Balsamico di Modena (P.G.I. – protected geographical indication)” we use is made from superior or-ganically farmed grape varieties. In this region of northern Italy, the balsamic vinegar has become an integral part of the cultural heritage.
Ideas for recipes and use of Balsamic Vinegar – Two-Part Salad Dressing
Just shake the bottle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar for a few seconds and instantly conjure up a perfectly composed vinaigrette for tomato and mozzarella salad or a delicious salad dressing for water melon and feta cheese salad. The mixture is also excellently suited for seasoning meat, fish, or lukewarm served vegetable dishes such as asparagus, zucchini, and artichokes. The Balsamic Vinegar – Two-Part Salad Dressing can be heated and is suitable for baking.
When harvesting our olives, we can rule out the possibility of birds being killed by highend automated harvesting equipment. We are in constant close contact with our farmers, who only harvest olives during the day using gentle vibration machines or by hand. Learn more about olive harvesting techniques here.

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.
