Corto California Olive Oil at Far West HEB

I love this Corto Extra Virgin olive oil - heard about it on a recent splendid table episode. Maybe it's the bag in a box, or maybe it's a mistake, but it's only 17.99 for 3 friggin' liters, not even on sale. Used it in a greek salad with fresh tomatoes, onions, cukes from the 4th st farmer's market and I can't say I've ever had a tastier greek salad (w/ feta of course). Tonight it will be a bread dipper next to some grilled drum.

I'm not a huge fan of oils stored in plastic - chemically speaking, "like dissolves like", and plastic is more or less hard oil. But on the plus side, the bag keeps air exposure low as it's depleted and minimizes oxidation / spoilage (spouted from bottom). so far so great.
