    While we were at WDW we ate at Jiko and had a lovely sauce made from Peppadew Peppers, I asked the server what it was and was told that it was peppadews blended with olive oil and lemon juice and oil from the jar. But I am unable to duplicate it and was hoping someone here might have better information.

    Thanks in advance.

    Are you sure what you used was actually packed in oil? The ones where I work are packed in syrup.

    I'd bet he's leaving something out. Or maybe they're using a very particular olive oil that has a certain flavor? You know, very olive-y vs fruity vs floral vs normal?

    I guessing that something is missing, it is just not "right" but have no idea what "it" is.

    Do you remember what dish it was served with? We have a huge Disney recipe thread in this forum and it just may be listed, there is an index as well so you can easily find things.

    Try extra virgin rather than regular, or maybe you need a different country (e.g. spanish not greek :confused3)

    I am not an olive oil expert, does it really change the taste that much?

    Apparently:rolleyes1 Look at the labels on bottles, see if any of the descriptions make you think of the dish - fruity? peppery? Grassy? etc.

    since we can't come up with the recipe my suggestion is to email guest relations and request the recipe.

    Not really, it depends on how busy they are. I've gotten answers with a week an other times it can take months.
