3 Bean Salad

Gaea Kalamata D.O.P Extra Virgin Olive Oil comes from the P.D.O. region of KALAMATA in the southwest Peloponnese. I’m sure you still don’t know where that is.

Here it is!


Overlooking the Ionian Sea is a vast olive grove and the land that gave birth to the most sought-after world famous “Koroneiki” olive variety. Used solely for the production of this cold extracted superior category olive oil, the fresh, green handpicked Koroneiki olives deliver an extremely well-balanced oil with a unique pepper and almond aftertaste. Gaea Kalamata’s flavor profile includes an intense aroma of green banana and perennial herbs and a bright, peppery flavor of fresh green olives rich in antioxidants. Gaea products are available through a variety of leading grocery, mass and natural retail outlets including Whole Foods, Publix, Sprouts, Harris Teeter, H-E-B and others. MSRP: $12.99
