  • 200 g salted butter room temperature
  • 100 ml extra-virgin olive oil
  • a sprinkle of salt flakes


  1. Add the butter to a bowl and give it a quick whisk with a hand mixer for about a half minute.

  2. Add the olive oil and salt flakes and start mixing at low speed. Mix for about 2 minutes, increasing to medium speed as the mixture becomes homogeneous. The spread is ready to use.

Recipe Notes

  • In warmer environments this mixture may be too runny to use immediately. Chill in the fridge to firm up for 10 minutes if your room temperature is particularly high.
  • This butter spread keeps at room temperature (not over 25°C) for up to a week. Store airtight and away from direct light.
  • Salt flakes are recommended as they do not melt when whipped, thus providing a sound salt kick here and there. 
  • The use of salted butter is recommended both for flavour and for safer storage at room temperature. If you only have unsalted butter, mix in a sprinkle of table salt as you whip the butter before adding the olive oil. Then proceed to add salt flakes anyway.
  • If your butter is extra salted (2% salt or over) you may consider skipping the salt flakes, but that is up to your taste.
  • The nutritional information provided is only an estimate based on a suggested serving size.
