Italy’s Tastiest Exports to Be Showcased in Dubai This Month
CSO Italy, the Italian fruit and vegetable cooperative, is targeting Dubai consumers with a range of bright, flavourful, nutritious and healthy vinaigrettes, sauces and condiments using the finest quality products from Italy.
As a result of the unique climate and environmental conditions, Italy is one of the leading producers of fruit and vegetables globally with millions of tonnes of tomatoes, blood oranges, lemon puree, and Epli Italian apples produced every year. Thanks to their high nutritional values, the ingredients provide the perfect base for creating a tasty accompaniment to everyday dishes, as well as a boost of energy and vitamins.
Whetting the appetite of Dubai residents, CSO Italy has revealed four recipes to highlight the exceptional flavours of Italy’s most sought-after produce, all of which are readily available online.
Tomato Balsamic Vinaigrette
Tomatoes have so many different uses in Italian cuisine, so it is no wonder this tomato balsamic vinaigrette is incredibly versatile. Bursting with flavour and pleasant acidity, this dressing is great drizzled over just about anything, from leafy greens to cold pasta salads.
Freshly-Squeezed Blood Orange Vinaigrette
Tangy and bright, this blood orange vinaigrette is perfect for summer, adding the perfect pop of colour and vibrant, fruity flavour to any salad. Made with the juice from antioxidant and vitamin-rich Italian blood oranges, this dressing boosts nutrients and taste and colour.
Italian Lemon Curd
Lemons have been used for years in Italian cuisine, from dinner to dessert. They are straightforward, yet popular and widely used in the Italian cuisine, just like we would use salt and pepper. Indeed, they are grown all year long, making them readily available, although the peak harvest happens in winter. Lemons are incredibly widely used in the dessert to offer intense flavour with little bitterness.
Homemade Apple Sauce
Apple Sauce is a sauce made of apples and is widely used in cooking. It’s delicious either chilled, hot, on its own, in savoury dishes or even in baking. However, it’s usually store-bought ready-made. Today, we’re showing you how easy it is to make a healthy apple sauce filled with nutrients and vitamins. You will only require a few basic yet qualitative ingredients. Did you know it can even be used as an egg replacement in the baking recipe? It is vegan friendly!
