These are truly gorgeous olive oils and vinegars. During taste tests last summer, my nephew -- a teenager! -- declared, "We could drink this!"
He was right -- and food professionals and others agree -- which makes me extra-pleased to offer three great ways for readers to experience such immensely satisfying olive oils and wine vinegars.
Why am I doing this? It's my small way during the season of Thanksgiving (don't miss this year's Thanksgiving vegetable recipes!) to thank readers, for trusting in me, for encouraging me, for sending favorite recipes, for inviting me into their kitchens. Plus, it's no secret that I believe that learning how to make homemade salad dressing is a healthful and frugal habit for families and individuals both. If good olive oils and good vinegars are the inspiration, lovely!
THREE EASY WAYS TO WIN!
Win a Two-Bottle 'Natural Box' from O Olive Oil
To enter to win, leave a comment below: share which Natural Box oil and vinegar combination most appeals and how you'd use it. Simple or creative, you decide!
IMPORTANT -- for your comment to be eligible, you MUST leave your e-mail address in the comment. I promise, I won't sell the address or use it except to contact you about winning. To protect your address from spammers, feel free to code your address so it looks something like alanna AT kitchen HYPHEN parade DOT com. I'll figure it out, the spam computers won't.
Only one comment per e-mail address per 50 comments. Duplicates will be discarded. Comments without e-mail addresses will be discarded.
Comments will be approved as they're left so may take time to appear online, especially overnight.
Winners will be announced and notified following each batch of 50. So check back, especially because readers are welcome to enter more than once, so long as no more than one comment per e-mail address is received within each group of 50 comments.
A single e-mail address may win only one Natural Box.
No purchase necessary to win.
Win a Case(!) of Olive Oils and Vinegars from O Olive Oil
More than that, there are two grand prizes, thus two lucky winners, each will win a case of olive oils and vinegars from O Olive Oil.
Here's the good news -- all readers with active e-mail subscriptions on November 29th are automatically eligible to win the grand prizes. (Why? Because I recognize that e-mail readers are a little shy about leaving comments. That's okay, I still want to say 'thank you' for being such faithful readers!)
New e-mail subscribers between November 1 and November 29 are automatically eligible to win, with two entries, not just one. (Here's how to sign up for a free e-mail subscription.)
Every eligible comment (from above, for the Salad-Lover Prizes) is automatically entered to win the Grand Prizes.
The Grand Prize winners will be announced on Sunday, November 30th.
No purchase necessary to win.

When asked, enter the coupon code 'veggie' (without the quotes) for the discount to be applied.
November 5 (1-50) -- congratulations to esther DOT wieringa AT gmail DOT com, you've won the first Natural Box from O Olive Oil! Look for an e-mail from me shortly. (Thanks to my Twitter friends who shot me their favorite numbers which I then averaged with a wild card from Random.org.)
November 12 (51-100) -- congratulations to angelack AT hotmail DOT DO T com, you've won the second Natural Box from O Olive Oil!
November 21 (101-150) -- congratulations to Katy from Silly Tater Tot, the third Natural Box winner! Katy's profile says she's a future lottery winner, so this is a good start! She also made me so pleased, when she responded, "How exciting -- I read your blog every day ... sometimes multiple times a day! In fact, I was just on trying to find uses for the cardoon that I picked up on a whim. :)"
November 30 (151-200) -- congratulations to Sarah from the Finnish blog Get Palmd for winning the fourth Natural Box from O Olive Oil. She must be living right because she just won something else, too!
And now for the grand prizes! I'm awaiting word back from these lucky winners!
