  • Extra-virgin olive oils can differ greatly in flavor. Some can be mild, and others can have a peppery or even slightly bitter taste. When making a dressing that uses olive oil, make sure to taste the oil before using to ensure you get the flavor you’re expecting in your dressing.
  • What is an English cucumber? An English cucumber is the long skinny cucumber that comes wrapped in plastic and is unwaxed. It is usually sweeter and less bitter than a regular cucumber and has a more tender skin.
