Salads and such! / candied nuts

Blood orange olive oil, asian inspired salad

Orange & Honey Ginger Spinach Salad


My favourite Asian inspired salad ever! The perfect compliment to any Asian dish, this dressing is super easy and the salad is surprisingly refreshing!  Our Japanese Toasted Sesame Oil is crucial, everyday grocery store sesame oil just won't do! Try it with white rice and either our Spicy Sweet & Sour Chicken  or Air-Fried Tofu!

The dressing:

1 tbsp NOOC Blood Orange Fused Olive Oil

1 tbsp NOOC Japanese Toasted Sesame Oil

2 tbsp NOOC Mild EVOO (I used Arbequina),

1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari

3 tbsp NOOC Honey Ginger White Balsamic

Black pepper to taste.

The salad:

1/2 arugula & 1/2 baby spinach

Avocado, cubed

Fresh mandarin orange slices 

Thinly sliced red onion

Toasted or candied slivered almonds

Toasted sesame seeds

Cucumber, diced (optional)

Toss and serve!

Balsamic Candied Nuts or Seeds

Balsamic Candied Nuts or Seeds

This is a way healthier way to "candy" your nuts and seeds.  There are so many oil and vinegar combinations I can't narrow it down to one!  You can really use whatever you fancy, it will work the same.  BUT, a couple of my favourites combos are Harissa & Mango or Olive Wood Smoked & Vermont Maple


  • 2 c nuts or seeds of your choice (I prefer smaller nut pieces, slivered almonds are my favourite)
  • 1 tbsp NOOC Flavoured Olive Oil of your choice (Harissa  or Olive Wood Smoked)
  • 1 tbsp NOOC Balsamic Vinegar of your choice (Mango or  Vermont Maple


Preheat oven to 350*F

Toss seeds or nuts in a large bowl with NOOC Flavoured Olive Oil of your choice and a pinch of sea salt.  

Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet 

Roast for about 10 min or until just turning brown (keep a close eye, this can go south quick!)

Remove from oven, put back in the large bowl and toss with the NOOC Balsamic Vinegar of your choice.

Return to baking sheet in a single layer and finish roasting pumpkin seeds for another 5 min or until crackling. (Again, they can burn fast so keep an eye!)

Remove and let cool (about 10 min).

Enjoy warm, cold as a snack or on top of soups or salads.

"Great experience. Thought I was just getting olive oil. We tried so many pairings, we had to stop to be able to decide on what we wanted. All combinations were good. The advice was good as well. We were told to think about how and what we cooked before deciding on what we wanted. This helped us to choose what we would cook with, instead of buying based on the taste. They all tased good!"
"Wandered in here on a whim and was blown away! I absolutely love olive oil and have visited some great places in growing regions in Argentina/Spain etc., but this is by far some of the best tasting flavour combinations I've ever had - not what I was expecting to find on a visit to Canada.
Highly recommend :)
I love shopping at the Nelson Olive Oil Co. Michelle and her team are there to help you find the right oil or vinegar to suit your needs. Always excellent friendly service, very fast and efficient. I refer friends and family at every opportunity. I highly recommend checking them out if you haven’t already.
