Sometimes we get so used to something, we take it for granted — this is exactly how we feel about olive oil.

The health benefits of olive oil are off the charts — it can do everything from lower the chance of stroke and heart disease, and do wonders for the skin. But unless you're only using it as a cooking oil, it can get a little boring on its own.

We've put together 28 recipes that will rekindle anyone's love-affair with this oil. This list of dips, sauces and dressings feature some recipes where the oil is the star and others where it's the perfect companion. It includes some re-visioned classics like a healthy mayonnaise, some curious pairings like a date and peanut spread, and some sure-to-be favourites like the cilantro chimichurri sauce.
