What are the best uses for different types of Olive oil?

For example what is best for salad dressing Extra Virgin, extra light ? I bought some extra virgin first cold pressed unfiltered at an Italian market, can I use it as I would any extra virgin? what kind is best for sauteeing? I usually just buy middle of the road EVOO that I use for everything but I wanted to try some different ones.

  • Yes, you can use it the same. Might be nicer for dipping if it's a good one. I usually use the nice ones for dipping or salad dressing and then cook with others but they are all cold, first pressed.
