My friend, Cheri, made a version of this oil one weekend as a delicious part of a girls weekend breakfast. It's herbaceousness with just a touch of saltiness is so incredibly tasty. It's perfect drizzled atop a plate of toast, fresh greens, and a fried egg, but it's uses are endless. It also makes a great last-minute homemade hostess gift.
