Restaurant-Style Olive Oil and Balsamic Bread Dip
Serves 1... I mean 4.
cup good quality extra-virgin olive oil
cloves garlic, crushed and minced
tablespoons oregano (or Italian seasoning)
cup fresh parmesan cheese, finely grated
cup balsamic vinegar, or to taste
fresh ground black pepper to taste
crusty bread, for dipping
- Pour the olive oil into a small shallow pan. Set over medium-low heat.
- Add the minced garlic. Leave the oil and garlic over the heat just until it has warmed, (you are not cooking it, just warming) then pour the oil onto a deep plate or wide, shallow bowl.
- Immediately sprinkle with oregano, parmesan, balsamic vinegar, and black pepper.
- Serve with hot crusty bread! Prepare to abandon your dinner.
