As a surprise, my husband bought a tasting for us at The England Olive Oil Company in Concord MA. We had a fantastic time sampling their olive oils from around the world and balsamic vinegars imported from Modena Italy. It was difficult to choose, but we settled on a red apple balsamic vinegar, a pear and cranberry white balsamic vinegar, an everyday extra virgin olive oil and and an extra virgin olive oil infused with garlic. Pear, dried cranberries and blue cheese on a bed of baby spinach and arugula were the perfect ingredients to highlight our new purchases. I splashed the extra virgin olive oil and the pear cranberry white balsamic vinegar over the greens and ripe Bosc Pear. A little drizzle of my cranberry bog honey, blue cheese and fresh ground black pepper finished it off. Easy and so delicious.
