surprise [sə(r)ˈprīz] noun: an unexpected or astonishing event, fact, or thing.
This may be the first recipe that starts with a word definition and it is because it is truly surprising. This is an absolutely delightful combination of two foods that could not be more dissimilar and any reasonable person would never put together. Maybe that is the very reason this works. The olive oil complexity intensifies the taste of your favorite ice cream and adds a mild peppery burst and a fresh fruit aroma. It is a surprisingly crazy, wonderful combination.
You will be licking the bowl after one spoonful. . .and it is a good thing too. Health professionals recommend adding 2 - 3 tablespoons of olive oil to our daily diets and what better way to do so than drizzled over ice cream!
