How do I know I'm buying a "good olive oil?"

MarleneDietrich | May 29, 2017 09:47 AM

I frequently see recommendations of having a cheaper olive oil for cooking and a "good" one for salad dressing and finishing dishes. But how do I know what is good? I like the inexpensive one I get from Trader Joe's, but I get the feeling I might be missing something. But everytime I go to choose a "better"(or more expensive? ) one, I'm overwhelmed by the choices. Does a higher price automatically mean better quality?
