Olive Oil & Pringadas

If there is something important in Spanish Gastronomy and Mediterranean Diet, this is with no doubts "Olive Oil". Phoenicians and Greeks introduced Olive trees in the Iberian peninsula, but were Romas and Arabs who extended the olive crops and improved the methods to make oil from them. Indeed, the word "Aceite" has an arab origin “al-zait” meaning "olive juice".
Is there a better way to try and enjoy Spanish olive oil than spreading it on a slice of fresh bread? Probably not. And, if olive oil tastes too bitter or strong, just try to add some sugar onto it!
