Eat Smart® Green Beans make all your green bean recipes easy! They are triple washed, prepped, and ready to use. They can be steamed right in the bag. It’s as easy as poking a few holes in the bag and popping them in the microwave.

O Olive Oil & Vinegar products are a kitchen necessity! These artisanal olive oils and vinegars are made from lush California olives, organic citrus, and Sonoma Valley’s best varietal wines. O uses old-world methods of natural aging in wood barrels and stainless steel tanks to make award-winning artisan wine vinegars.

Available in a variety of fun and fresh flavors, these oils and vinegars can take your dishes from fine to divine! We used O California Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and O California Aged Sherry Vinegar on our blistered Eat Smart® Green Beans but that’s just the beginning of endless options!
