Decadent Dessert: Olive Oil Ice Cream with Salted Caramel Sauce

July 2, 2013

When thinking of ice cream, olive oil may not be the first ingredient to come to mind, but this little fruit isn't only for drizzling over salads. A nice, quality oil should smell fresh and fruity - precisely what we want in an ice cream recipe! As Savoury Table says about her recipe, "It is without a doubt the creamiest, densest, smoothest ice cream I’ve ever eaten. Pair this with some salted caramel sauce (recipe follows) and you have an incredible dessert that will impress your guests."
