The Olives of Azapa, Chile are pungent and luscious. The oil they provide is truly a godsend on any salad expressly when balanced with fresh lime juice and completed with a pinch of Salt & Pepper. To travel in the Atacama desert: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atacama, you´d think there is nothing present save the beauty of the open exhausted expanse. So very wrong! There is an olive that begs you to pause and redefine the concept of time-savour. Here you are encouraged catch your breath and claim the joys of appreciating your life. Please, stop and smell the olives and the perfume of Azapa Olive Oil. Your mouth and eyes will water when you do.
