REVIEW: Emile Noel Artisan Oil Review + Pomegranate Vinaigrette Recipe!

*Mommy's Makin' It receieved a product to facilitate this review. Regardless, all opinions are my own.

Emile Noël was founded in 1920 and uses an artisanal production method. The very old but carefully maintained presses extract oil slowly and carefully. Modern presses, extract the oil too quickly and too hot so the oil don't get that authentic flavor. Emile Noël's oils have always been non-GMO and organic.
Mommy's Makin' It had the pleasure of receiving a Bottle of Emile Noel Sunflower Oil. This oil is ideal for dressings, dipping, and garnishing. It doesn't cook well because of it's low smoke point. It has the potential to burn easily. Emile Noël has a wide selection of organic virgin olive, nut, and seed oils including mild olive, robust olive, sesame, toasted sesame, sunflower oil, sunflower spray, pumpkin seed, hazelnut, walnut, and sweet almond. There really is something for everyone!

I love making my own fresh salad dressing. It is really nice to have a beautiful, fresh vinaigrette that I know is healthy and chemical free! This oil is the perfect choice for these types of recipes. It has a really deep flavor that balances really well with vinegar! I can also see using this for warmed garlic oil to dip a nice crusty bread in.

Pomegranate Vinaigrette
1 tsp Dijon Mustard
2 tsp Honey, Agave, or Maple Syrup
3 Tbs Pomegranite Red Wine Vinegar (you can use any flavor you want or plain white or red wine vinegar!)
1/2 cup Emile Noel Artisan Sunflower Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

1. Combine Dijon, Honey, and vinegar in a bowl.
2. Slowly drizzle in the Sunflower Oil while whisking to emulsify the dressing.
3. Add in salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate to chill and serve over your favorite salad! I like to garnish with pomegranate seeds.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
