Living a healthy lifestyle can mean something different for everyone, and the kitchen is a great place to start. A plate of your favorite nutritious foods topped or cooked with olive oil is already a delicious step in the right direction. Our olive oil recipes are loaded with nutritious benefits for you and your family to enjoy. Here are seven of our favorite healthy olive oil recipes.
Spatchcock Grilled Chicken With Scapes and Garden Herb Sauce
Enjoy the divine taste of a brick-grilled chicken breast when you try this recipe. Its simplicity allows for an easy meal filled with protein and vitamins. Chicken breast is lean meat, which has a high value in protein that can strengthen your muscles and boost your metabolism. Prepare the chicken with drizzled olive oil, salt, pepper and squeezed lemons to create a simply delicious meat dish.
Another unique aspect of this recipe is the garlic scapes. Though most kitchens are familiar with garlic cloves, many have yet to taste the mild flavor of scapes. Like olive oil, garlic scapes are rich in antioxidants. They can protect against osteoarthritis and prevent an oxidation process that leads to liver damage.
Sheet pan dinners are a deliciously simple creation for you to enjoy as a quick meal or side dish. Though you can use just about any vegetable in your kitchen, we recommend a selection of root veggies like carrots, potatoes and shallots. Add in a half-pound of brussels sprouts, and you have a fiber-packed plate of yummy vegetables.
A serving of veggies is crucial for a balanced meal. With one pan, salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil, you can enjoy all the benefits of hearty vegetables in a tasty dish. Each of our recipe's vegetables is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants so you can get your daily serving of nutrients.
The secret to perfect seared scallops is in the crust. With a bit of butter and extra-virgin olive oil, you can create a crispy scallop. Add a side of crunchy capers and radishes for an antioxidant-rich supplement. If you are looking for a unique dish to spruce up your dinner, these delicious scallops are a heart-healthy and tasty option.
Scallops and other seafood are high in Omega-3 fatty acids, which can help your nervous system, heartbeat and even your mood. When you sear your scallops with our olive oil, you can feel good knowing the crust is coated in a healthy alternative. Plate your scallops with avocados, shaved radishes, capers and cress leaves for a green and nutrient-rich meal.
Summer Salad With Homemade Vinaigrette
A refreshing summer salad can be the energy boost you need in the middle of a busy day. Complete with fresh veggies and a light vinaigrette, this recipe packs loads of nutrients and vitamins. Prepare this salad with our organic sunflower oil and extra-virgin olive oil for a high dose of heart-healthy oleic acid.
Summer salads can include any of your favorite ingredients, so feel free to add your favorite fruits for a bit of tartness. We chose baby broad beans, carrots, radishes, peas and garden herbs for the main ingredients. Each of these veggies adds beneficial minerals and vitamins to your meal. Drizzle a homemade vinaigrette with white vinegar, Dijon mustard and olive oil, and you have a filling side dish for your summer barbecue.
Grilled Veggie Kebabs With Herbed Olive Oil
Veggie kebabs combine all your favorite ingredients with one simple recipe. Zucchini and summer squash are low-calorie, high-nutrient vegetables with a delicious warm flavor. Combine these with bell peppers and portobello mushroom caps for a well-rounded serving of veggies. Serve these kebabs alongside corn on the cob or grilled tomatoes for even more nutrients.
Grilling these appetizer kebabs is the perfect dish for your summer party. They can complement a plate of seafood, chicken or quinoa for a vegetarian option. Top each kebab with La Tourangelle olive oil and your favorite mixture of herbs to give it an extra boost of flavor.

Start with fresh salmon fillets, and add a mixture of olive oil, Dijon, mayonnaise and chopped herbs. Cook on the grill for 15 minutes, and you have a delicious main course rich in antioxidants.
We love salmon dishes for their simple and delicious dose of Omega-3's. Salmon is a lean and protein-rich fish, which helps your body's muscles and protects your bones. When you prepare salmon with a simple recipe, you can enjoy numerous health benefits and a delicious flavor.
Strawberry Caprese Panzanella Salad
